Benefits and Perks
Only 37 percent enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Employees looking to save up for old age can choose from several options including a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan. Perks cover health insurance for a large number of workers and dental coverage for most respondents. The list of perks also includes gym membership, tuition reimbursement, and life insurance.
