    Generally the benefits package is good but you work longer hours and a longer school year to compensate for the good benefits.

    3 personal day. I understand we get a lot of breaks but there were a few days I was sick and I felt horrible going to work knowing that I could infect others.

    Paid time off: - 2 weeks for New Years - 1 month off in July - 1 week off in April - 1 week off in February - All federal holidays off Sick days: - 3 days sick leave without pay deduction. You receive a $1000 bonus if you don't use any of them. The few sick days are offset by the amount of vacation days you get due to school closure. Health benefits are OK, 403(b) is OK.
