    Excellent Benefits. You do have to work at USC for a bit to get tuition discounts for your self. Use the tuition benefits as much as possible. See if your spouse can benefit form the TAB benefit too. After you are done with your degree with less or no debt you will be very happy. Their are some Master's programs where you can take one class a semester and that will really reduce the cost of your degree. Structured programs like a MBA will still cost you. However, the TAB benefit is very nice. I really counted the week off around the December Holiday's a really amazing perk.

    USC offers amazing benefits! Excellent healthcare options and even dental care through the faculty practice with 100% coverage (no copays!). The best thing would probably have to be the retirement options: USC 5% involuntary, and you can contribute up to 5% which USC will match. Potentially 15% of your income can therefore be put into your retirement, and 10% of that would be paid by USC.

    Healthcare, vacation and education benefits are great.

    The best thing in the benefits package is that you can have a sip of coffee in the office while reading your own book
    then you can have access to GYM at a lower than market average price

    The benefits package here is very generous. They offer a generous 403B for full time employees. They not olnly match, but double your contribution, if you put 5% (which is the max) they will put 10%, giving you a max 15% into your 403B.

    Current Research Associate in Los Angeles, California

    The retirement savings plan (401a/403b) is VERY generous, contributing up to 10% of your salary after a vesting period. Also, tuition benefits are significant for both the employee and immediate family members.

    The health insurance was good. There were not any other benefits

    Tuition Remission is the BEST!

    401k contributions are tripled by employer, tuition is covered for employee and children, spouse gets 50% tuition discount, on campus health providers make medical appointments easier.

    The best thing about the benefits offered is the vacation time. You get four days every two months.
