I consider my health insurance reasonably priced for the high quality of services and doctors. Then again I am single. I am not sure how much married couples and families pay for health insurance. FTEs are granted access to life insurance, 401(k), health savings, etc. I personally like the benefits and plans we are offered. On site at the CNN Center in Atlanta, there's a doctor's office. You can visit for check ups, emergencies, other regular care, and counseling sessions. BUT if you are joining a show team, any sort of editorial team, running on the 24/7 schedule, then your PTO process will look very different from mine.
