    Benefits are good. The company offers 401k match (5%) and puts money into your HSA. Vacation time is good for new employees and you can actually use it. There are also commuter benefits, which is especially helpful downtown.

    Used to have good health insurance options then they pushed everyone into Consumer Directed Health Plans (CDHPs) with high deductibles and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) which are not as great . If I had known better I would have funded both the HSA and the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) the first year of transitioning. Then I could have used the FSA money which allows the total of the full year to be spent at the beginning to cover the $1500 in health care costs I had to pay early in the year before I reached the deductible and before I had any money in the HSA to cover it. Then I could have used the HSA to cover that $1500 for each year after.

    The 401K match is very competitive. Recent move to high deductible medical plans with HSAs and our own supplemental insurances (accident, critical illness, hospital indemnity) that are portable are also great.

    The Standard Response

    We are glad to be able to offer a very competitive 401K contribution. The recent decision to freeze our pension plan was based on a comprehensive competitive market assessment and our desire to offer... More

    Insurance options have changed, not as good of coverage as in the past. Other benefits are very good.

    "Meh". Health insurance coverage used to be "decent", but now it's terrible and expensive with few options.

    Benefits are decreasing fast. A lot of what we used to have no longer is available. The biggest this year is the Health care. Unless you are born healthy and never get sick it will cost you. They provide CDHP which is misleading. It stands for Consumer Directed Health Plan, It should be the avoid the Dr at all cost plan. Your premiums should be lower (but they are rising to the point or our PPO was at) and you should be able to put the money you are saving towards your HSA. But when some medications are in the hundreds to thousands a month it doesn't save anything. It's sad when you have to switch from a medication that works well to a medication that sort of works because that is what you can afford. I think The Standard really needs to rethink this health care plan. It hurts it's employees more then it saves money. Other benefits like PTO, Dental, Vision are good. The 401k match is pretty average

    As an employee with 1 year of service, I get 148 hours of PTO/year, which is great. However, the health care is through Kaiser and it's a CDHP so it is not great.
