Best thing is PTO: vacation time, holidays, summer and winter shutdown, and synchronous days off

Current Principal Scientific Associate in Boston, MA, Massachusetts

Benefits overall are great. HR tries to bring you in at a low salary because of the larger amount of RSUs, but they take 3 years to vest, so it's a long time before you see that income.
