Our policy is TOTAL BULLSHIT. I had to buy a medication that literally I would die without (in a matter of 1 to 3 days) on the black market for about a year, and I know how to navigate health insurance. Either that or our benefits manager sucks. Possibly both.

Pay around $75 per paycheck, so basically $2,000 per year for health insurance. Agency/holding company pays the rest. I also pay extra for Vision and Dental, around $30 per paycheck for that. I have a $35 copay for doctors, and dental is limited to $1500-2000 in benefits per year.

100% covered is not standard to be honest

It also matters what type of plan. Companies will often cover more of a plan like an HMO but more of a 50/50 split if it’s a more expensive more comprehensive PPO. Personally I’d rather kick in a couple hundred bucks a month to ensure a good PPO.

Me too! While I COULD use the paid for plan I don’t. Because it sucks.

100% covered by the agency is definitely not industry standard. I have heard of this yet never have enjoyed it. Must be a pretty dope perk

Maybe people don’t realize they are paying for it because it’s coming out of their paycheck?

Nothing comes out of my paycheck besides the standard taxes, retirement, etc.

Background:Asia, expecting to promote to M this cycle. Looking for some advice on being headhunted/jumping ship. I’m speaking to HR from another big 4 + a recruiter for another firm for an M role, and it looks like the $ and potentially benefits will be bigger, but I’m not that keen on moving unless the $ is a huge jump. Any advice on how I might navigate this? Have interviews next week for the other roles.
