    “vision insurance is a joke. and dental is pretty okay but you still end up paying for things out of pocket. Medical is 80/20 and that 20% gets pretty...”

    The Medical Insurance package is quite good, I have never had any issues with my coverage.

    Great travel benefits overall. The medical benefits are good. Drilling down into the details, I think management should look at some additional areas to strengthen coverage. Thinking of a family someday? They have preventative care, sterilization, and abortion covered but no fertility assistance. I would like to see one additional PPO with another higher level of coverage.

    great for employees United Airlines will go out of their way to rip-off your widow/widower of Flight Benefits and they reduce their Medical Benefits to the bone.

    We get 6 days of vacation when you first start, the second year it doubles to 12, but then you don't get anymore additional vacation until your 5th year. we do get a 401k and they match 8% which is great!

    Standby travel is the best thing ever. You can go wherever you want as long as there are seats available and you can fly in business or first!
