Benefits and Perks
Only one-seventh of respondents enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Approximately one-half of workers participate in a 401(k) program. About two-fifths of workers receive health insurance, and about a fourth of workers get dental coverage. The company also dishes out perks such as free drinks, a casual working environment, and 401(a).
