    StarStarStarStarStar Current Assignment Editor in Washington, District of Columbia

    Good thing: 5 weeks of vacation time after 10 years. Not great things: Frozen pension. Well below market rate on 401(k) match. Changes in recent years in sick leave and health care benefits.

    The medical Insurance coverage was horrible.

    They cut the 401K match sometime ago to 1% (from 5%) and they no longer provide a pension, despite a pension fund that is overfunded.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Health Plan is a bit costly and 401K only matches 1%. The positive is that there are options, but there also could be a better health plan and better matches on 401K.

    Decent compensation for an intern. Consistent with market rates

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in New York, New York State

    Benefits were comprehensive but not great. 401K was only 1% after 1 year, health insurance was pricey and maternity leave was very short (2 weeks paternity, 4-6 weeks maternity).

    Health insurance is good- Kaiser is great and easy to deal with. Time off is good as well, you get 3 weeks EACH of sick time and vacation time, so there's no need to stress about coming in sick.

    The overall benefits were good. The health and vacation packages were fairly aggressive. Compensation was on the low side upon entry.
