    Everything is covered: Health, retirement, long-term care, insurance, and leave. If you are short on sick leave, you may apply for a donation program (hopefully you’ve gained some good karma along the way to have other employees donate to you!).

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Akron, Ohio

    The Health Savings Plan does not roll over, it's use or lose (which should be illegal, because it is not their money, it's yours and the balance should be returned to you). Family Leave can be tricky and training (required online courses) is likely to be done on your time and dime because many are overworked. Medical staff are highly paid, but many others have had pay cuts to balance budgets.
