Considering everything, Auburn University has a very good benefits package. The health plan is not cheap but the coverage is outstanding. The School of Pharmacy has a dedicated Employee Pharmacy with zero co-pay on generic prescriptions. The retirement plan from RSA is one of the few remaining (and thriving) defined benefit plans out there.
The best thing is the involuntary retirement matching program. It is a great thing to be involved in from day one.
I was no eligible for a benefits package because I was a temporary working when I was full time but from all my colleagues that work for Auburn their benefits packages are great along with wonderful perks. My favorite perk is that when the school is closed typically that means all operations are as well so you get those days off along with PTO.
