    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Irvine, California

    The best thing is the onsite health care. It is very convenient and the doctor is great. As far as drawbacks, the healthcare was downgraded in advance of Obamacare to use a high deductible but with an HSA, but this seems to be the industry trend. Another drawback is that vacation time was recently changed to "unlimited but subject to management approval." What this means in practice is that instead of getting paid for vacation days you don't take, you get nothing. This is especially problematic if you need maternity or medical leave since instead of being able to use accumulated vacation days, you immediately get put on disability.

    Best is unlimited PTO, worse is unlimited PTO. My manager encourages to take but don't abuse but sometimes its hard to get away. When you earn it..bank it, feel like you deserve it more
