Just updated the parental leave and it's AMAZING
Under Hearst umbrella -- full benefits package. In house gym. Liberal policy on time off and family assistance .
401k match is average at best and could stand to be beefed up. However, the available plan does have good low fee options to invest in. Health insurance is basic. nothing special and somewhat pricey. Absolutely outstanding PTO/time off policy. If you have been there a few years this amounts to over 20 days a year (and you will actually be allowed to take it. In several years of working here, I never once had a PTO request turned down or felt guilty for taking time off). This is in addition to 3 Floating Holidays, and 12 standard company holidays (the office also frequently closes around major holidays for an extra day or two beyond what was originally planned, adding even more time off). Flex Time was recently implemented in Chicago, allowing employees to come in early/leave early etc on an ad hoc basis. Work From Home options need to be worked out with your manager but they are fairly accommodating in this regard as long as it is not being abused. Finally, there are various additional discounts you can obtain such as 20% off Verizon cell phone bills. No bonuses.
The healthcare coverage is sub par, the tuition reimbursement is basically non-existent
Strong support for women and new moms including leadership focus, grass-roots programs, strong maternity (and paternity) leave, and a push to support one another.
Vacation and company holidays are very generous
Expensive benefits & high deductible.
Vacation time is thin. Health coverage is great and they were able to enroll me right away without having to wait the standard 30+days.
Expensive cost and new high deductibles
Good PTO program aided if you are long-term employee (>6 years). Flexible work from home times although rumors are the company will be stricter with work from home policy in near future.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
