    StarStarStarStarStar Former Campus Tour Guide in San Francisco, California

    Comprehensive health, dental, and vision benefits for about $90/month (it may be more now). Only 7 paid holidays and 2 weeks vacation is not enough.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Full Time Faculty in San Francisco, California

    Not a great health plan. Currently under husband's because it's a better offering. Really have to fight tooth and nail for decent PTO and vacation in your contract.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Undergraduate Admissions Representative in San Francisco, California

    Best: Enrollment in 401k, and they match up to 3%. Worst: No real commuter benefits or passes.

  • Mar 07, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Administrative Assistant in San Francisco, California

    Benefits are not that good, PTO is minimal.

  • Nov 16, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Campus Safety in San Francisco, California

    One free class per semester

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in San Francisco, California

    They give you benefits so that is always a plus but they are very stingy and aggressive with the benefits. A lot of strings attached that they don't bother to share with you during the hiring process.
