Best company to work for
15 days of vacation AD&D and Life Insurance $1,000 dollars toward extended health (e.g. massage, chiropractor, counselling/therapy, nutritionist) Minimal dental and vision No RRSP Decent plan for a new grad/individual but not great for families or someone who requires access to multiple extended health services.
Unfortunately Sandvine did not provide any 401k plans nor stock options or stock purchase plans. Good health plans for family and individual. Typically 15 days vacation plan and lots of flexibility using it.
Benefits are lacking (mainly rrsp)
Standard benefits are average (vision, dental, etc.). The also provide a certain amount annually to divide between things like massages, chiropractor, acupuncture, etc. I wish they would provide more flex dollars to put towards other benefits (e.g., a personal fitness allowance that could be put towards a gym membership or home gym equipment). They often do free snacks (e.g., Healthy Snack Tuesdays, employee anniversary and birthday celebrations), and they have a monthly social with lots of snacks and apps. They used to have an employee stock purchase program, would give stock options to high performers, and would provide profit sharing to employees, but since the acquisition and take-private they have yet to replace the profit sharing with anything (though they have been promising a replacement), nor have they launched any programs to replace the lost equity programs.
best: start with three weeks vacation worst: you have to submit all receipts online and they regularly get flagged for review which is annyoing
Drinks and coffee are great
Simplistic basic coverage. Good for graduates starting out in the workplace, poor for a family.
there's no bonus at all. there's coverage for teeth/eye
What is the best or worst thing about the benefits package at Sandvine? Very satisfied. A great benefit package that is easy to use.
