Comprehensive in its range of benefits.
The benefits are good on the whole. There's a decent range - from an excellent pension, through to discounts on local sports facilities. The one small criticism would be that a few of the benefits are of most use to those who live very locally to the office, and so can conveniently use those swimming pool and sports club facilities, for example. Having said that, a real plus is that plenty of activities tend to arise throughout the year which are open to employees as a result of the companies sponsorships. For example, the ability to attend Cambridge Film, or Literary Festival events - either for free, or at a discount. These are very accessible to everyone and, if anything, are things the company should shout more about! In short, besides from a very 'local' nature of some of the benefits, the full package offers at least one thing which should excite everyone, regardless of demographic. In time hopefully greater flexible working becomes more engrained in company culture and can become a true benefit also.
Growing benefits package - getting better each year
Pension is very good. Healthcare is good. General work environment is good. Nice flexibility around life events as they arise. Wasn't always the case.
Best: good (and occasionally very generous) share schemes; large (12%) employer pension contribution; private health insurance for employee and family; company-wide performance based bonus scheme (~5%); life insurance. Worst: depends on perspective. Ambitious consultants - sharing bonus across the company keeps the environment collegial, but reward for excellence requires sustained high performance rather than one good year. Lifestylers - little flexible working, working from home, part time etc.
A generous employer thanks to its high proportion of employee ownership. Pension contribution is generous (over 10% employer contribution). Pay is high if you perform well and stay. Free health and life insurance. Good bonus if you do well, and excellent share plan.
Free to take your holiday when you want - no one puts any pressure on. It would be nice if you could take unpaid leave but you can't.
Relocation package and health care
Private health insurance, life insurance, generous contribution towards pension, profit share, company share options, cycle to work scheme, some free or disiscounted sports facilities in town
Excellent pension and health insurance - but no flexible working at all.
