Benefits are great, and life insurance is a added bonus!
True Media offers great insurance plan, 401k and PTO plans.
The addition of short term disability and PTO bank vs. sick/vacation took the benefits up a notch. The PTO schedule is generous, including entry level.
Flex time is very helpful!
Full line-up of benefits including medical (75% of employee cost paid by True Media), dental (50% of employee cost paid by True Media), vision, life insurance ($50,000 of life and AD&D paid by True Media!), voluntary life, short term and long term disability 100% paid by True Media! PLUS 401k and 401k Roth available with True Media matching 100% up to 3% of employee's contribution.
For the size of company that they are (100+ employees) their benefits are good. They pay 75% of employee premium on health insurance, match 401K up to 3% off salary, and they pay 100% of LTD insurance coverage. PTO is good.
True Media's benefits package was pretty solid for a medium sized company. They had 401K, even matching, all types of health insurance, and a fair time off policy. No paid maternity leave however.
Some positions are more flexible than others. It really depends on the manager and the conversation upfront when you are hired about things that the team needs. I personally have been able to work non-standard office hours and work from home for my entire time, but I know that this is not the same for every position. The management staff really look at if you are getting things done, if people have trouble with being able to reach you or if you have trouble being held accountable - otherwise they are willing to make anything work! Obviously some job roles are different than others as well, so some positions require more face time or specific pieces that require you to be in an office setting more. Company has moved to all paid time off instead of splitting vacation and sick time. This means, even if you have kids and you have to take sick days, many of the times I was able to flex that time and save vacation for actual time off! The office actually closed last year for a week and a half for Christmas/New Year which was AMAZING! This was all paid time off. The president of the company does give bonus' to employees who work hard. I just feel that it is a bit disconnected since we never hear why we got the amount we received but I have received a significant bonus every one of the years that I have worked at True Media. Health insurance is not the best cost wise, but most in the area compare it to huge companies or the state benefits that most university employees have. It is very comparable to working at the previous private employer, which was 5 times the size of this company, so I feel that the company does contribute a fair amount for a private company, it just won't compare to holding company agency level rates that are able to be negotiated lower due to their sheer size! Lots of opportunities to invest personally and have the employer invest in the 401k. Even portions of the bonus at the end of the year go to your 401K and un-used PTO contributes to the 401K. New Short-term disability completely funded by the company that also helps cover maternity leave! Much needed and appreciated with a younger/growing staff. Company matches all donations to charitable cause of the year, several events to promote the charity and volunteer as well.
I gave two stars only because True Media does offer the option to buy into health and dental insurance, however, the cost is much higher than other agencies in the area, even of similar size (I paid three times as much at True Media as at my previous agency). While the argument is that the company is too small to have more affordable options, the truth is the owner is unwilling to absorb more of the cost for the benefit of his employees. Because full time employees aren't eligible for benefits until the beginning of the month following 30 days of employment (which is standard) benefits are not disclosed until after the employee is hired. This lack of transparency definitely swayed my decision and had I known the extreme cost I would be covering just to have standard health benefits I would have reconsidered the offer. True Media JUST began offering maternity leave in 2016 but as of now does not offer paternity.
High cost, due to being a smaller company. Health benefits significantly higher than my previous employer. Good 401K plan. Very against working at home, even on an as needed basis.
