    I think the benefits package is great! The health insurance allows you to earn money towards your premiums and deductible by doing things they consider healthy. This includes your two dental cleanings and one eye exam each year among other things. They also have a gym on each of the three main campuses. They provided matching for your retirement. They also have clinics available at all three main campuses with a pharmacy with very cheap prescriptions.

    On site gym, pharmacy, and clinic

    The Health Benefits are top notch. There are incentives in place to be proactive regarding your personal health, and doing so earns you a "discount" on your health insurance. The clinic on campus is great. I can make an appointment with my PCP into my hectic schedule no problem because the clinic is steps away. The gym is a huge plus, I utilize it almost daily.

    Are pretty much forced into using their own internal clinic, and the healthE incentives program just becomes an annoyance. I shouldn't need to jump through hoops for discounts if I have great blood work and am in excellent shape.

    Clinic and medical assistance on site.

    I love being able to walk down stairs for a clinic visit and to pick up a prescription. I also love the fact that we are rewarded for working toward or maintaining a healthy lifestyle, from our cholesterol levels, number of steps, to dental exams, which makes our premiums lower. Another perk is unlimited sick days without it affecting your vacation days (just have to provide a doctors note if you're out for more than three days in a row).

    The health insurance has a very high deductible, which varies depending on the number of people you have on the plan. It's best to make the maximum FSA pledge if you have any chronic health issues so that you are at least paying that deductible out of pre-tax dollars.

    The worst feature of the benefits package is that they are definitely targeted for on campus employees and comparable benefits for remote employees do not exist

    Great Pay, Self Insured, which does not pass cost savings onto associates.

    Very affordable and competitive. I am well compensated for my retirement and the growth of my education
