Benefits and Perks
The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only a quarter of employees report compensation for sick days and vacation time. It's easy to build up retirement reserves here with programs such as a 403(b) plan, a 401(k) plan, and a company pension plan. Health insurance is part of the package for the vast majority of respondents, and for a large number of respondents, dental coverage is too. Perks also include life insurance and tuition reimbursement.
