    403b you're able to take it when you move jobs.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Newark, New Jersey

    You receive 3 personal days and 10 sick days each year, but when you try to use them, management talks you out of it and makes you come in even when very ill. They recently increased the percentage that employees pay, and will likely continue to do so each year.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in New York, New York State

    Great employer-matched 403B, low-cost insurance options that cover everything under the sun, multiple vacations built in through out the year. However, realize your workday will be EXTREMELY long and the workload can be incredibly overwhelming.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Office Manager in Boston, Massachusetts

    They made this position an hourly one even though it is industry standard for the position to be salaried. This usually meant it did not qualify for certain benefits.
