Very few employers offer pension.
401k and pension plan - they stopped matching 3% to 401k during downturn 2008
Solid benefits package with different options. Had no trouble finding in-network providers.
No benefits for part-time employees.
Discouraged from using sick accrued time pay which caps at 40 hours
Good museum-caliber benefits, but not the most competitive
Vacation was very limited but the health plans were great and the HR staff who administered benefits was competent and responsive. I did not experience maternity leave firsthand, but I know that many of my colleagues found it to be almost insultingly bare.
The best thing is the medical coverage, although the price to employees has continued to increase. Overall, a great employee benefits package.
The best thing is that you can get a really decent health care plan (at least as an individual) at no cost. The worst thing is that it's really difficult initially to find out exactly what the plan coverage is. The museum offers multiple health care plans, but you have to do a lot of digging to get everything you need in order to compare the plans. When they reviewed this info during new employee orientation, the HR rep FLEW through the info so fast that no one had a clue what the different plans entailed.
Solid coverage but the pension plan is under negotiation.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
