The 401k match is small at 4 percent and the health insurance and bereavement leave are subpar. Salary, vacation and training are very good.

Health insurance isn't the greatest and paid time off could be better.

Pretty standard vacation policies, 6% 401k matching, not great healthcare but a few options to choose from. Not super flexible with remote stuff post pandemic return to office

Hated Aetna as the health insurance provider, but WaPo did provide a separate (?) teleservice that would do the work of finding doctors for you that took your insurance. 401(k) matching was half your contribution.

The 401K match is only 3-4% which is quite low.

20 Weeks Parental Leave with the option for an additional 6 weeks is very good. Health Benefits are not competitive.

[Arc XP] Best - Generous maternity & paternity leave - Remote optional (manager discretion as of March 2022) - Flexible PTO & sick time (given 15 of each but mostly manager discretion) Worst - No bonus plans for non-management staff - Health care is a high-deductible Aetna plan which no established providers actually accept, and no mental health reimbursement (besides a one-time, virtual-only, 50% reimbursement during the pandemic, which ends in March 2022), leaving you 100% out of pocket for a decent therapist. Or, an HMO plan with Kaiser, which if you don't live nearby a location makes going to appointments incredibly inconvenient.
