    The company made a significant investment in improving the benefits package in 2019, including increasing the 401(k) company match, introducing an HSA-type plan, offering personalized fertility services, and rolling out vision, critical illness and accident plans. That's in addition to a 100% company-paid pension plan, paid parental leave, generous time-off programs, company-paid basic life and disability insurance, pet insurance, advisory services for selecting and enrolling in a 529 College Savings Plan, back-up elder and child care, legal services at group rates, and an employee perks and discounts program.

    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.

    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.

    Decent compensation for an intern. Consistent with market rates
