    Current licensed practical nurse in Tacoma, Washington State

    While they are a union body, and offer good to excellent benefits, such as dental, health, life, retirement contribution, the contribution could be more competitive. for an organization that is already paying at or below market for their base salaries I wouldn't have expected to see such paltry sections in the benny package.

    Great benefits! However, sometimes the quality of medical care can be poor.

    Current Aviation Maintenance Technician in Savannah, Georgia

    Free medical and dental for employees. Dependents dental coverage not so good. Medical coverage for dependents is good but only if you find a good Primary Care Provider.

    Thrift Savings Plan is fantastic and a big reason to go govey. The health benefits are okay, not as good as they used to be, and the leave policies are very encouraging of family/work balance.

    401K(Thrift Savings Plan) is great!!!! BCross insurance is offered and it is accepted at most healthcare facilities.

    Benefits ensure all your basic needs are met, however, you do not get a choice in what specific type you want. It's a one size fits all mentality and you get what you get for health care, retirement benefits, base housing etc.

    Current Employee in Jacksonville, Florida

    you get affordable health insurance, affordable retirement plan as well as additional savings plan where as long as you contribute, then they match what you give, so it's like free money. You have the stability of a guaranteed pay check, a lot of paid holidays off, good moral, respect, and discipline.
