At Mathematica, we care about the well-being of our employees and their families, and we believe in providing comprehensive employee benefits. The benefits listed below are available to our regular-status employees.
Mathematica offers a variety of health and welfare benefits to suit the differing needs of our employees and their families.
A PPO plan is offered in all locations, while an HMO plan is offered in our New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and Cambridge locations. All medical plans provide comprehensive coverage for a wide variety of services, including prescription drug coverage. Premiums are subsidized by Mathematica.
Mathematica's comprehensive dental plan includes full coverage for routine preventive care as well as partial coverage for other dental services, including orthodontic care for dependent children. Premiums are subsidized by Mathematica.
Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts
Individual health care and dependent care accounts allow employees to use pre-tax dollars to pay for dependent care and out-of-pocket medical expenses for themselves or their dependents.
Life and Accident Insurance
Mathematica offers income protection to our employees by covering the cost of life and accident insurance. In addition, employees may purchase supplemental group term life insurance for themselves, their spouse or domestic partner, and their dependent children.
Temporary and Long-Term Disability Coverage
Disability insurance helps an employee meet continuing financial obligations if temporarily or permanently disabled. This benefit provides some salary replacement to those who are unable to work due to a non-occupational illness or injury. Mathematica also provides workers' compensation insurance in the event of a workplace illness or injury.
Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)
At Mathematica, we believe that being an employee-owned company has significantly contributed to our success. In addition, ownership by employees provides the framework for long-term growth. The company makes contributions to the ESOP annually, which are then invested in Mathematica stock on behalf of eligible employees. Read more.
401(k) Profit-Sharing Plan
Mathematica's 401(k) profit-sharing plan is designed to help employees save for retirement by allowing them to set aside pre-tax income, which the company then matches based on company profits. The company also makes a base contribution for each eligible participant, whether or not they choose to make deferrals to the plan. The base contribution is also derived from company profits. Employees decide how the contributions will be invested from a broad set of investment options.
Paid Time Off (PTO)
Mathematica recognizes that individual lives do not always fall into well-defined categories. Therefore, PTO may be used for any purpose: vacation, your own illness, care for a family member, religious observance, or a personal emergency. Employees earn additional PTO as service grows, up to a maximum of 30 days per year.
Mathematica recognizes eight paid holidays.
At Mathematica, we emphasize continuous learning and individual growth. Our small-company environment is ready to help you pursue a career path that matches your abilities and desire to achieve. Career development is encouraged through on-site training, job performance discussions, and internal job postings.
Mathematica is committed to supporting staff who pursue continued professional growth and career development. We consider reimbursement for educational expenses an important vehicle for addressing that need. The tuition reimbursement benefit provides employees with assistance to increase performance effectiveness in their present positions and encourages them to obtain skills, knowledge, and abilities that may improve their opportunities for career advancement within the organization.
Employee Assistance Program
Mathematica's Employee Assistance Program provides employees and members of their household with confidential advice and support in addressing a broad range of personal concerns and life issues. Coordinators are available anytime to listen or make referrals to local resources in the community.
The transportation benefit permits employees to pay for certain transportation-related expenses with pre-tax dollars, thereby avoiding most income and payroll taxes. It also allows for convenient home delivery of monthly passes from a growing list of transit and parking providers.
Bicycle Commuter Benefit
The bicycle commuter benefit is employer-funded. It provides a reimbursement of up to $20 per month for certain bicycle expenses to employees who regularly use a bicycle for a substantial portion of the travel between their residence and place of employment.
529 Plan—College Savings Plan
This plan allows employees to save for their own or a family member's educational expenses through payroll deduction. The earnings in a 529 plan grow tax deferred, and, when the beneficiary of the plan is enrolled in an educational institution, qualified withdrawals are tax free.
Mathematica recognizes that employees who adopt a child incur expenses not covered by our usual benefit plans. This benefit provides some financial support for third-party adoptions.
This is a summary of Mathematica's benefits and does not present full details of each plan. Details are subject to change at the employer's discretion.
