    Former Research Fellow in Brookline, Massachusetts

    Although there is a 401k the institute put less and less into it. Computer and health club. Enemies were eliminated over the years. Employee contribution to healthe insurance more than doubled in the last ten years.

    Former Research Fellow in Boston, Massachusetts

    The best is the health insurance and the worst is the lack of 401(k) program for research associates

    Good retirement package, MBTA reimbursement and health/dental Insurance packages. Supports commuters, bikers quite a lot.

    The benefits package is competitive with the other hospitals in the area. There is a very nice retirement package, though it requires 3 years of full-time employment to be fully vested. Includes a retirement plan (a matching program PLUS one that they contribute a percentage of your salary to automatically), health and dental plans, life insurance options, short term disability, pet insurance, and fitness reimbursement.

    Because of its size the Institute is able to offer many perks and good benefits. The time-off is also very fair. Like any treatment facility getting time off around the holidays can be more difficult than organizations that do not treat patients.

    Three different health care plan, 2 different dental plans to choose from; for people who aren't familiar with US health care system hard to understand what's offered, little assistance

    Current Employee in Boston, Massachusetts

    No retirement matching for postdocs.

    The benefits were pretty good. Even offered discounted pet insurance.
