    Decent medical benefits if using in-network provider but no covered dental plan. 12+ days of paid vacation, but more is often negotiable.

    high contribution, poor coverage within State Employee Health Plan
    paltry 6.7% contribution to retirement plan

    Current Research Assistant Professor in Chapel Hill, North Carolina

    Nice health insurance, expensive dental

    Employer matches employee contributions to retirement after vestment period, health insurance is accepted widely in NC,

    Best - that it does exist and has a limit of $1000 out of pocket. Worst - no dental, maybe because the dental in NC is a nightmare (keep this in mind). Vision - only cover $150 a year for either contact or glasses. Maternity leave is in reality does not exist because although you can leave for 1.5 months, by this you exhaust all your vacation time for a year. Although my PI is relaxed about people leaving for vacations/maternity as long as they are productive in other times, people who apply for a postdoc at UNC should really discuss this ahead.

    Time off and vacation are rare.

    Benefits package only includes very basic items.

    The health insurance premium is outrageous. BCBS is the provider and offers family health insurance for about $700/month even though there are 100,000+ employees insured in the state. My family had much better benefits and much lower premiums when employed in the private sector.

    The health insurance is pretty good for grad students, but dental insurance is not offered and many people are unhappy about it.
