Probably the best part of the benefits (for us) is the Progyny fertility benefit and 20 weeks paid parental leave policy.

The Washington Post has expanded their benefits package to include up to 5 months maternity/paternity leave. Their health insurance is solid.

PTO, parental leave, 401k matching

5-month parental leave is really generous.

The only health insurance option is HSA. Insurance is quite expensive for what it is. 401K matching is $.50 on the dollar up to 6% (i.e. 3%) which is average. There are many pretax benefits for employees to take advantage of, but the onus is on the employee and the ability to maximize these benefits is dependent on one’s salary. Parental leave stands out as a recently updated policy that is now quite generous and competitive (20 weeks paid/26 weeks job protected), but there are not any apparent equivalents for other kinds of leave or sabbaticals. There are few other benefits or perks beyond these basics. Most employees have been remote throughout COVID but there is no sense as to permanent flexible policies, and messaging has been very much focused on an eventual mandatory return to the office.

The benefits are improving, but aren't near what the competitors are offering.
