Benefits and Perks
The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only 19 percent 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 403(b) plan. Perks cover health insurance for a large number of workers and dental coverage for a strong majority of survey participants. Employees can also look forward to defined contribution (dc) retirement plan, a company cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.
