Benefits are in line with similar companies. Though 401k match is small, it is a nice addition that not all companies have continued since financial crisis. Unlimited PTO is nice for some people.
All the benefits were adequate or below average
Health insurance was great. Year-end bonuses were tied to company performance, but as the year neared its end, it became clear that goals were unreachable. Thus, bonuses for non-executive employees took the form of giftcards worth maybe 1-2 days salary. Really stings for an exempt full-time employee that spent many weeks working way past 40 hours. Stock option plans were revamped multiple times, and each time was as confusing as the last. Perks advertised on the website (food, massages, etc) would be taken away on a whim, and would suddenly reappear after a wave of layoffs.
Employees on salary gets unlimited PTO. Hourly employees get 10 PTO days a year. Matched half of 401k contribution up to 1%.
Underground Elephant's benefits package is exceptional in that it is a mixture of above-average employee coverage, a 401k matching plan, tuition reimbursement, mentorship with a Champion in Residence (Paul Vaden), awesome parties and all-company activities, all-company meetings and lunches twice per month, free breakfast and beverages, generous paid time-off policy, in-house massages, and a commitment to innovation--as a company, as professional, and as individuals. This is the most progressive company culture in San Diego. I think our Millennial employees learn more about technology, marketing, and entrepreneurship here in 2 months than they would 2 years at any other company.
benefits were honestly great. no complaints
The Health insurance is by far one of the best in the industry. As well as benefits with vision and dental. There is also a subsidized parking program, and a 401k
401K matching is 1%. Stock options are only vested at the time of a sale.
Best thing about the company is the stock option package, but you cannot take a lot of vacation to qualify. This conflicts with the unlimited PTO.
What benefits? Place is a complete disaster
