Is SUSE a great company to work with? Thoughts on work-life balance and benefits?

I've heard it's pretty good after the first six months. In terms of wlb. Not sure about the benefits.

The culture and work-life balance are great, but it isn't a good spot if you'[re looking to grow and move up. There's something going on within leadership that just seems to keep them shooting themselves in the foot.

Interesting, I've come across them before. Have you received an offer OP?

I think the work-life balance is great. On my team of about 10 people, more than half have taken more than a month of PTO per year. One person took 6 weeks at a time, another took 2 months off at once. Both men and women usually take a few months of parental leave. This company has been the first place I worked for that seems to be serious about the "unlimited" part of an unlimited PTO policy. They let people take time off with little advance notice, because all that matters is that the work gets done. In my place it's a great place to work if you have obligations outside of work.

Can somebody pls explain this to me: if somebody has a medical emergency and needs to use short term disability, the firm says they need to pay for all of their other benefits at the full rate, not the employee discounted rate, so like $400 for health insurance instead of $100. Do they ever reimburse this money or is this the terrible setup they have if you need to use your disability benefits? I feel like I'm missing something.
