Benefits and Perks
The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only one in four workers 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 403(b) plan and a 401(k) plan. A strong majority of employees report having health insurance, and a majority of respondents report having dental coverage. United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) folks also make good use of a casual working environment, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement.
