“The prices are very competitive and they offer a few different options. The carriers are also easy to work with. ”
“I never received any kind of performance bonus. Only the holiday bonus which was minimal. ”
“Only 1 year to be vested. ”
Overall the benefits were well-rounded, included a company pension (was frozen after I left).
I enjoyed the flexible work hours.
The benefits package is very good and they have multiple options. Cost have also remained very competitive.
Great benefits, lots of options
They contribute yearly to your HSA
401k matching, benefits is good.
The 2nd half of 2018, the company adopted permanent summer hours and then in 2019, the company adopted flexible, unlimited vacation days. So this is an improvement.
The benefits at Waddell & Reed used to be awesome - pension plan, wellness plan with medical insurance discounts, a few extra paid hours off the day before a holiday, a turkey at Thanksgiving, etc. However, over the past couple of years, Waddell & Reed has consistently reduced the benefits available to employees, removing the ones that made Waddell & Reed extraordinary and leaving it squarely in the “average” category. The benefits now are pretty standard (not bad, just not great) - 401(k), vacation time, 11 paid holidays, employee assistance program, etc.
You can get group health insurance but your benefits are all on your own. You are a 1099 employee. Freedoms in exchange for benefits
Package used to be better when company was at it's peak. Some things have changed but still an overall good and competitive package for long term employees.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
