Suggestions for improvement
- Revamp the insurance sliding scale/deductible of those who make less than $75k a year or increase salaries. My net income is now $5k above the national poverty line. I can barely get by, but it is hard to find a place with flexible schedules. However, my cost of living issues are going to put me in an early grave.
What I like about the company
I am caregiver for a parent and my children and needed to leave my corporate job in Chicago in order to be closer to home. NU gives me flexibility with my schedule in order to do what I need to at home. However, that came with at 60% pay cut and a $6,000 insurance deductible. So I traded financial security for flexibility and I am still not sure I made the right choice.
What I dislike about the company
Even though insurance premiums are based on a sliding scale, the deductible is still very high. I cannot afford the no deductible PPO and have to go with the lowest cost option. However, that comes with at $6k deductible. I now have almost $11k in medical debt that I am still trying to dig myself out of. However, because my salary is so low, this is an incredible challenge.
