This may sound crazy, but does anyone else not love summer break? I enjoy my work. It gives me purpose. Sure, we plan and do things over summer, but I find the constant pressure of finding constructive things to do day to day increases my anxiety. Give me two weeks like winter break and let’s get back to it 🤷♂️

AF has a solid 403(b) and the company matches after 5 years. Insurance isn’t the greatest. But if you’re a generally healthy person, the coverage is sufficient. Overall, the benefit package covers most basic things for employees.
Healthcare, dental, vision, and 403b.
Various great benefits and focus on caring for the whole person
The premiums for family coverage are really high and the coverage isn’t great, even for children.
The package is complete and meets the needs of the individual.
