    Pros

    Pros: Health, Dental, 401k and Life Insurance Drawings for prizes, Special Events Vacation to extent(see further comment under Cons)

    Cons

    Recent negative change to vacation, forcing/recommending everyone to take 5 days of vacation in July-August. Also forcing/recommending everyone take 28-31 of Dec off. Also from what I understand they're removing the carry-over that used to occur that allowed you to carry over until the end of March. I remember hearing about one of our competitors having a forced vacation around a holiday (or something like that) and at the time I was likely appreciative that we didn't have that here. Now we have a similar ridiculous thing here.

    We welcome your feedback. We’re happy to hear that you’re enjoying our competitive benefits package. As you mention, we recently announced that we’re encouraging employees to take holidays throughout the year, including 5 days over an 8-week period this summer and several days at the end of the year. Taking time off, especially in these unprecedented times, is important for our wellbeing and for our business continuity. This exceptional policy is in our people and the business’ best interest, and it is similar to what many other organisations are doing as you rightfully point out. Also, we want to confirm that we’re not removing any existing carry-over policies. We encourage you to reach out to your Manager or HR Business Partner if you have any specific questions.
