‘Pretty standard corporate benefits package’
‘Vacation is standard for the industry (which is fair). Nice that overtime can be banked at some offices and taken as additional time off. There are also personal days each quarter. ’
‘4% match, free money once eligible and good for total rewards’
Free lunches, fitness bursary, personal days
Working on improving things but a long ways to go. Benefits are not great here.
Benefits not very good, hardly any coverage
Health benefits are minimal, but leave policies are flexible.
Nothing worst that can be said
Docked for time off and pension takes a year before it kicks in
complete package. Health benefits could be more generous.
The benefits package was good
For vacation, I believe most people start off with 3 weeks. It takes five years or a promotion to get 4 weeks, and then ten years to get 5 weeks (which is kind of insane). Partners again, operate on a different scale than the non-partners. The personal days are super great (one per quarter, use it or lose it) and something that seems somewhat unique to MNP. You also get six sick days per year (lean!) but on the plus side they're accrued and carried over from year to year. You can also borrow against vacation or sick time and earn it back. Of course, MNP is also famous for offering paid OT (with approval) that can be paid out, but more often, you're encouraged to take additional time off. The health / dental / vision benefits are pretty lean but not unlike other companies I've worked at (i.e. not great, but not any worse than anywhere else). Partners get better benefits than regular employees. On the plus side, your benefits are fully paid for as an employee, although I seem to recall you have to pay for your family's dental premiums (not your own), and you can top up their basic life insurance options. They also have a program where you get a certain amount of money per year (depending on title) that you can put toward lifestyle activities such as gym memberships, class passes, massage therapy (once your benefits are done), or even classes for things like dance or art, or joining a rec sports league. Basically anything that goes toward a better work/life balance. That amount is paid out / limited to a certain amount per quarter and they only pay 80% of it. So for example, if your total credit was $500 for the year, you'd have $125 per quarter. If you signed up for a one-month bootcamp for $100, they'd pay $80 for it that quarter, and you'd have $45 to spend for the rest of the quarter. The math does make it a little hard to max out the benefit, unless you're just applying it to an annual gym membership. Maternity leave, they offer you a top up to receive 80% of your salary (on top of your EI benefits) for the first 17 weeks, although you are supposed to return to work for a full year to not have to pay any of that back. I do know someone who left the firm within two months of returning who had to pay close to the full amount back, but I know someone else who was there for closer to a year and they didn't have to pay anything back. There is also an RRSP matching program which is fantastic that you can opt into; you give up a small amount of your salary each cheque and they match it for you, which lead to me having a pretty robust LIRA by the time I was done working there. Bonuses do exist but on a random, discretionary basis - there isn't a 'bonus program' to work toward by any means. There is money available for training opportunities like conferences and classes, but honestly, it was pretty random when and how those opportunities were paid for. You basically pitched for it and they'd approve it or not with little clarity as to why. Not many other benefits to report on, from a non-Partner standpoint. The company is generally pretty good about letting people work from home or duck out for appointments, there's free drinks in some offices, lots of little office perks (particularly during busy season) and celebrations to partake in, but on a day-to-day basis, the benefits are as above.
Good drug and dental. Poor vision, massage, psychiatric. A lot of fairly superfluous options. Pension funds matching, decent leave options, etc. Benefits plan is nothing special but not bad overall.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
