Benefits and Perks
The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only one-seventh of employees report compensation for sick days and vacation time. Workers who save for retirement get lots of help because the company offers a number of savings programs including a 401(k) plan and a company pension plan. Health insurance is part of the package for a large number of survey participants, and for most respondents, dental coverage is too. The company also dishes out perks such as life insurance, tuition reimbursement, and a subsidized cell phone.
