  • 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!

Former News and Feature Journalist in Boston, Massachusetts

The Globe offered every benefit that you can think of, as well as a high salary. When the New York Times bought the Globe, they gutted the competition and cut reporter salaries by $30,000.

Parental leave is not great, basically just the minimum required by law. Mothers can take up to 12 weeks unpaid and get 30 of those days paid through FMLA disability claim. Have to use vacation to get paid for anything beyond that.

Former Market Research manager in Boston, Massachusetts

Low pay compared to comparable companies. Good vacation, but ever increasing health care premiums.

Former Employee

The best thing is three weeks or more paid time off. Worst: health insurance premiums.

We're good health/dental care, as well as an ample number of vacation/sick days.

Former Designer in Boston, Massachusetts

The mulitple health plan options available--easy to change. also had options for dental and vision plans, spending accounts, and commuter support.

Former Employee

I was an intern and had no benefits, obviously. A few paid vacation days.

Current Employee

The benefits package is compresehensive and the Globe does subsidize a fair amount for each product/service. I think they could do a better job at retirement planning. They are making efforts to hold sessions, but they're for everyone in the company vs breaking it out based on age / life stage.

Current Copy Editor in Boston, Massachusetts

As a part-timer, I do not receive benefits.
