    Current Employee in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina

    Good health insurance premiums and vacation. Reduced long-term care rates can be used for family members. Very limited performance bonuses.

    Current Employee in Bethesda, Maryland

    10 paid holidays, vacation time, 403b, health insurance.

    Current Staff Scientist in Baltimore, Maryland

    Retirement plan and health insurance are excellent. Annual leave is not generous, sick leave is a little better. Work from home is a great option.

    For postdocs, NIH offers very good health insurance and makes it easy to add a spouse to the plan. Dental and vision insurance must be self-purchased.

    Job security, terrific health insurance, lots of days off, can have liberal telework policy

    Health insurance worldwide is great. No 401K, dental, or optical benefit

    stable income with routine increases and ability to increase compensation by accepting increasingly responsible roles.

  • Oct 17, 2014
    Current Staff Scientist in Bethesda, Maryland

    Government pension is a huge plus, assuming you stay until retiring. Health plans not any better than your average large non-government company.
