Benefits and Perks
The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only one-half of workers report compensation for sick days and vacation time. American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) helps its workers sock away funds for retirement, offering plans such as a 401(k) plan and a company pension plan. For the vast majority of respondents, benefits include health insurance, and a fair number of respondents get dental coverage, too. The list of perks also includes tuition reimbursement, a subsidized cell phone, and life insurance.
