    I didn't work full time there but if you do you get tuition remission.

    Great tuition remission that kicks in quickly - partial benefits for self and dependents after only 4 months of full-time employment. Great paid time off (vacation and holidays.)

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Associate Director in Boston, Massachusetts

    Generous retirement (recently revamped to help starting employees begin to save early); great health insurance options (which also underwent a review in the last several years and so reflect the University's current priorities; in other words, don't expect massive cuts in health benefits in the near future, I would guess...); a chance to get a degree or advanced degree at VERY little cost. (NOTE - I''m sure faculty get sabbaticals, but not regular staff...)

    Health Insurance was super affordable because there is a plan where you go to BU Med/BMC for your primary care and pay even less.
