    StarStarStarStarStar Former Office Manager in Boston, Massachusetts

    Vacation and time off policy is very generous. Health and dental plans are great too. Don't like personal time and sick time policies.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Administrative Assistant in Boston, Massachusetts

    Pension only; bus pass discount

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Program Manager in Boston, Massachusetts

    Varies per agency. Defined Benefits Retirement Plan -- State / Boston --- can work almost anywhere in municipal government with no break in service . Some divisions are quasi-public and are not eligible but have 457. Health care is excellent in most agencies. State health care not as robust. Some agencies have immediate personal time credited to you on first of year. Others are accumulated.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Student Assistant in Boston, Massachusetts

    best: fringe benefits, nice environment and coworkers. worst: could have got a better payment. The job prospect is a little bit slim and not the best place for inspiring, energetic young people who look forward to a exciting career.

  • Jul 16, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Boston, Massachusetts

    Several packages to choose from for health insurance and many are affordable. The six month probation period with no sick days allowed is ridiculous.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Senior Research Analyst in Boston, Massachusetts

    The worst benefit package is that training and education benefits are at the discretion of your director. This means if you do not have a personal relationship will not get approval.

    The company has the standard benefits any average company has.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Boston, Massachusetts

    excellent accrual rate of benefits

  • Oct 12, 2016
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Boston, Massachusetts

    Great medical insurance options at better than competitive employee cost and, depending on union, free dental and eye basic coverage. Phenomenal retirement program once years of service requirements have been attained.

    interns don't get benefit package! You are allowed to take vacation time upon request and they are pretty flexible about it.
