    Old Plan seems more beneficial to employees that the current net plan, Rumours of further benefit cuts on-going.

    Benefits have been declining over the last few years

    If you work as a consultant, like many people do, you receive no benefits since you are an independent contractor.

    I like the fact that their policies allow for a work/life balance. In some departments this is easily available, however in others it may be like trying to draw water from a rock. We contribute to our health care benefits, and it does have good coverage for pregnancy, cancer, and other auto-immune diseases. Compensation is fair and number of days for leave is based on the number of years you work.

    European-style leave policies, very generous COBRA policies (I was able to keep my COBRA health insurance coverage for 3 years after I left!), very good health insurance options.

    The best thing is the pension and generous health care insurance. The worst is that the benefits are nowhere near as good as they were before, and the trajectory is going down due to cost cutting measures. Salaries are not competitive and raises and promotions are few and far between. No bonuses. Also there is little flexibility to work from home in some units.
