Car allowance, health insurance, child care, flexible working, great pay, fitness perks
A moderate package that provides all round value. It can be improved but change is slow.
Great package covering all aspects of life, seems more useful if you have a family than if you don’t.
They have great company perks, and let you work from home
Nothing for contractors. Treated as second class citizens even though have same work commitments.

Great company to work with.
Great choice of benefits and core benefits are very strong. Ideally a higher percentage based on your salary for flexible benefits would be available (2% currently), but self contributions can be made too.
No Benefits for a contractor role. Treated as a second class citizen.
