  • Maternity & Paternity Leave(3 comments)

    Not a parent so have not utilized this benefit. I have heard it is normal. Think this is pretty standard.

  • Health Insurance(3 comments)

    They offer great options for health insurance!

The health insurance is great, and they have a very competitive and generous 401K matching program

Few perks. Health insurance is okay; parental leave policy is terrible -- must use sick time -- especially compared to other companies; retirement benefits have low company match.

Tuition reimbursement, that's the only pro.

Benefits packages are consistent with other Boston-based media companies. Many of the benefits listed are available though there may be a co-pay as part of the offering.
