Benefits and Perks
Only one in three workers enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Workers who save for retirement get lots of help because the company offers a number of savings programs including a defined benefit retirement plan and a 401(k) plan. For nearly all survey participants, benefits include health insurance, and almost all employees get dental coverage, too. Advantages of working here also include flexible hours, a defined benefit retirement plan, a subsidized cell phone, and life insurance.
