For a non-profit they are really big in the work/life balance. I received 3 weeks.
Good benefit package, but things like time off were difficult to take because of management expectations. Health care was excellent
Great health and dental benefits, including free dental checkups, low copays and deductibles, and a variety of health plan options for all employees
The good: In addition to a 403b (non-profit version of a 401k), World Vision has a employer-paid pension plan - depending on your age, they put anywhere between 3.5% - 9% of your salary into this plan. Vesting happens incrementally every year - stay 5 years with the organization, and you're fully vested, and the money is yours to take with you! Not many employers give you this these days. The 403b is matched at 50% up to 5% of one's salary (for 0-9 years of service). The combination of the pension plan and 403b makes it competitive with other DC-area employers. Depending on your pay-grade, the vacation benefits are generous (4-weeks of leave for Officer-level positions and above) The Bad: Employees have to pay for STD and LTD insurance. However, STD doesn't cover up to max-allowed 66% of one's salary, only 50% of the salary. STD is commonly used by women who give birth and take unpaid FMLA leave. STD only covers up to 50% of salary. The Ugly: Health benefits at WV have been steadily getting worse in the last few years - premiums going up, benefits going down. E.g. deductible and out of pocket max keeps increasing every year, prescription drug coverage has gotten dismally worse this year. If you happen to have any type of medical issue, ask VERY GOOD questions about their health plans, and what type of coverage you'll get. No paid maternity leave benefits - one has to use a combination of STD, earned vacation time and sick time to pay for maternity leave, thereby leaving employees with only two bad options: either use up all your vacation/sick time and stay at home with your newborn or shorten your time with your newborn in order to have some vacation/sick time in the bank.
retirement options (healthcare is expensive)
Strong 2-part retirement program with 403(b) and Cash Balance plans.
World Vision does pay a generous portion of the dependent medical premium, a lot of companies seem to be moving away from that. They offer a 403(b) and a pension the match is avg.
They are not designed for those traveling extensively, despite the work of the organisation
Good health insurance package, including additional discount for being part of an wellness program.
Health insurance is expensive, maternity and paternity leave is very limited for new parents. Lack of bonus or incentive options
