    Benefits are very good!! Especially the retirement plan. Medical is OK, and dental is provided by the UW. Bus pass discounts are awesome as well.

    Best is the retirement plans available. Worst are the bus pass which, year after year is much more expensive

    The benefits plan is really generous and flexible. I didn't make much use of it but heard from other employees that it was good.

    + Health coverage for employees and dependents is a plus.
    + Bus Pass allowing to ride freely on public transportation.
    - Health coverage is not a good as it was several years ago.

    Great benefits to make up for the below-market rate salaries.

  • Aug 19, 2014
    Current Counseling Services Coordinator in Seattle, Washington State

    Benefits are all inclusive. 403-b, plus various other built in easy ways to put pre-tax money aside for retirement. Paid time off is decent (compared to the U.S. as a whole)
