Benefits and Perks
Only half of workers enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. The firm looks out for its employees by sponsoring assorted retirement savings plans such as a 403(b) plan and a 401(k) plan. For nearly all employees, benefits include health insurance, and almost all survey participants get dental coverage, too. Advantages of working here also include a casual working environment, tuition reimbursement, and 401(a).
