What's your benefit package like?

Curious about how other industries tackle this, as I've had some serious health issues this year.

I can’t really think of anything that our benefits plan does not have. Medical, dental, vision, 401(k) match, fitness reimbursement, cell phone reimbursement, several different types of life insurance, etc. I feel pretty lucky about that!

I'm also maxing out my HSA contribution. We hit our out of pocket max every year.

I want to know why does Dental coverage suck so badly in the US?

In addition to the usual 401(k)/medical/dental, ours is pretty unique – we're all remote so we've got stuff like:

- $1000 yearly home office stipend
- $400 travel stipend to go visit someone else at the company
- 35 hour work week

I have a pretty average plan, given I work in the benefits space...I often wonder why we have such a lackluster package. It's one of the things I feel management could definitely improve upon. It is better than nothing though.

yeah, you'd think they would be all over it considering that its literally what you sell.........

It's weird, honestly. It's not like the plan is total shit, it's just very average. They do pay 90% of premiums though, so I can't complain too much when I pay only a few dollars for what I do get.

I feel good about my premiums, 401k etc.  Definitely would love a fitness reimbursement etc.  I mean, all of us don't work for Coinbase/Basecamp :)

Basecamp CEO said 'it's none of our business what people do at home' basically.  They did away with gym reimbursements and other personal wellness benefits, considering them 'nudges' to personal behavior.  :)  Both companies also banned certain conversations (political/social)... My ref was to the wellness benefits, of which I want many more lol.

I don’t hate healthcare. I love healthcare. 

I hate the way a few old white dudes literally profit off the death, misery and suffering of other humans. 

And I’m originally from Canada too.

i did get a signing bonus but everything else seems standard. the 401k is immediately vested which is nice but im thinking about dumping all of it honestly
