Benefits and Perks
Only two-fifths of employees enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Most employees plan for retirement by taking advantage of the company-sponsored 401(k) program. Health insurance comes as part of the deal for almost all respondents, and the vast majority of workers report receiving dental coverage as well. Privileges also include a casual working environment, stock options, free drinks, and life insurance.
