    Benefits start the day you're hired.

    Just to clarify previous comment related to RAND's Retirement Plan: There are two plans every full-time employee participates in: (1) The "Qualified Plan" (employee contributes nothing; only RAND's contributes). RAND contributes between 5 and 14% of your annual salary based on age bracket (the older you are, the more you get) It is actually a pretty generous contribution amount in my pinion. (2) Seperatelte from #1mabove, you may make voluntary contributions to a "Supplemental Retirement Annuity (SRA)" - this is essentially the same concept as 401(k). Internal Revenue Service regulations determine the maximum annual amount you may contribute ($18,000 IN 2015). On both 1 and 2, you have the option of going with either TIAA-CREF or Vanguard and the available funds at both companies are vastly superior than other employer I've worked at (over 100 options I think)

    RAND has a pretty large benefits package--medical, dental, and vision. It also has generous vacation time, usually 4 weeks. RAND provides two retirement plans: 1) A qualified retirement plan (mandatory enrollment; only RAND may contribute to this, not the employee. It's a pretty small contribution, too). 2) A supplemental retirement plan (403b; optional enrollment; employee contributes to this, and RAND provides NO matching) I have been less than thrilled by the lack of matching. The qualified retirement plan is sort of nice, although it is small.
