Best thing: Tuition benefit, which covers up to 100% of tuition in Bethel programs for full-time employees, and a large percentage for their dependents, depending on position and length of service
Best: Health coverage and tuition reimbursement Worst: None
Nearly two paid weeks off work between Christmas and New Year's
Great health plan. Expensive - but it's good.
Great time off and full tuition coverage for almost all programs in the school.
They have a benefits package but the health insurance premium is much higher than other schools. Also, the retirement plan is frozen.
The health benefits are great for middle age folks or older. As a young employee, I think they're terrible. There is not a plan available with a lower premium and higher deductible. An HSA is not an option. FSA is 100% employee funded, no contribution from employer, only $600 rolls over into next year. I pay $450/ month for myself and my spouse. We have low deductibles, and a low out of pocket max, but that only helps if we actually reach those limits in medical costs, and we never do. Because the premium is so high, we're not able to save any money. The PTO is pretty good. After 5 years here, as a salaried employee, I have 4 weeks of vacation, 3 personal days, 3 weeks of sick time, and 14 paid holiday days per year. The tuition benefit is great. As the employee, I get free tuition (I pay for books and fees) for any program except Physician Assistant and Nurse Midwifery. My spouse also gets a significant discount. After 2 years at full time my spouse is eligible for a 65% discount, 3 years 75%, 4 years 85%, and 5 years 95%, which is the cap.
100% employee tuition is covered and up to 95% for the spouse and dependants. Fantastic medical and dental coverage. From Christmas to New Years is paid holiday.
The best benefits of working for Bethel is the free gym, cheap but amazing food service, tons of paid holidays and vacation hours, and the flexible hours. The worst is that it is impossible to get raises so while starting out your salary may be competitive it will not remain that way, also the retirement plan used to be very good but recently got cut way back.
Not a whole lot of benefits, but you don't need benefits as a student. Benefits was flexibility I guess....
