    Tuition Remission for Employees and Spouses. Fifty percent of college tuition paid for dependents

    The university is not particularly family friendly, but tries to sell itself as such, which is annoying. No guaranteed protected time off after having a baby, unless you qualify for FMLA, much less paid time off. I did qualify for FLMA and got paid leave because my boss is great, but not everyone here has a great boss and requiring someone to come back to work immediately after delivering is really terrible public health (ironically, JHU has the top rated school of public health in the country). In addition, the university makes a big deal of its on-site "subsidized" childcare, which is 19-22K/yr for infant care (in Baltimore, which is not high COL), with no part time options for infants. They do provide (small) vouchers for families with income < 50K/yr, but 20K/yr is not exactly affordable even if your household income is 70 or 80K/year. My friends in Silicon valley pay less, in a much higher COL area.

    This wouldn't bother me nearly as much if the university just owned the fact that they are not family friendly, but they keep trying to sell themselves as something that they are not.

    Adequate 401 K benefit package, good health care benefits, covered 39-day vacation, sick day leave

    Fairly average benefits. Not work from home flexible or hours even during winter storms. A lot of vacation time, good health benefits.

    Johns Hopkins University provided health insurance only. usually post-docs do not get much benefits from the university.

    JHU has an amazing benefits package. Their health/dental options are exceptional, as are their retirements benefits. JHU also offers tuition reimbursement for employees and tuition coverage for employee's children.

    Health insurance is really good

    Hopkins healthcare plan (EHP) is excellent. They have a huge provider network and subsidize premium for those in lower pay positions. Their vacation/sick time benefits are also very generous, and JHU as a whole does care about its employees' work-life balance. Tuition benefits aren't that great.

    Good health insurance plan including dental and eyes, flexible working hours, easy access to gym

    The best is the education tuition grant for dependent children
