Best: - 100% coverage for health, dental, vision from first day you start (but it does take a week or so to receive your benefits card) - RRSP matching up to $1500 (or something similar) - Remote Work/Work From Home (when you work from home, they give you a generous, one time budget to create your home office) - Annual Healthy Living budget (for anything that helps you keep active) - One time headphone budget - Maternity/Paternity leave (I think up to 90% after a certain amount of weeks or something. I just remember it was something really good) - 4 personal days per year - 1 Celebration day - Sick days - Holidays off (but you do have to work 1 holiday a year) - Only work weekdays - When you're in office, free breakfast (cereal, milk, dishes, utensils, dishwasher) and free snacks - Free lunch on Thursdays - In office, they have a gym, private showers, towel service (fresh clean towels), tools to help fix your bike (if you bike in), ping pong table, nap rooms, meditation room/library, at least 3 kitchens (stocked with various beverages, including beer if you're into that) Can't really think of any cons with the benefits package. I was quite happy with it, and it's one of the best benefits packages I've had. I've been with larger companies who didn't have as many benefits.
No bonus. RRSP matching pretty low.
Best thing is that you don't need a doctor's note for it. Worst thing is that FreshBooks isn't keeping up with many other tech companies re: flex hours, work from home, vacation time, or larger health budgets. There are many perks, but to stand apart in this space they could do more.
Best thing - healthy living credit. Worst - you get a good vacation package but it is not a set amount, it accumulates as you work.
Nothing to complain, really. It was generally good.
Best thing is $750 per health care provider at 80% coverage per visit. 80% coverage for drugs.
There is nothing negative about the benefits at FreshBooks
There ok for today's standards nothing great.
$200 Healthy Living Credit is pretty sweet
Health benefits are middling, with 100% dental coverage ($1500 yearly), decent eye-glasses coverage, 80% coverage on paramedical (therapy, physio) with pitiful $500 yearly maximums. It feels very much like "we're a startup!" even while the company is hitting that solidly mid-sized company size. $200 yearly healthy-living credit is quite helpful. RRSP matching is pretty decent! I like the $1500/year RRSP matching program as a starting point for a real retirement savings package. Non-gendered parental leave with EI top-up and deals with local childcare provider for employees! If you include the 12 sick days per year as a benefit, this is incredibly helpful for parents or people with chronic illnesses.
