Health insurance is a little steep. Post doctoral students can not use the Health center in the university campus unfortunately.
Great vacation and sick leave policies (including bonus vacation days every year at the holidays).
The health insurance for postdoctoral researchers.
The benefits package is good. Tufts health insurance, Delta dental, retirement benefits kick in after one year (they match 8% with a 5% minimum contribution on a range of Fidelity and/or TIAA/CREF accounts). You qualify for discounts on Liberty Mutual insurance. MBTA passes can be purchased pre-tax, but not at a discount. Staff and faculty have free access to the gym and pool.
Excellent health and dental. Flexible work-life balance.
The best is the 403b matching.
403b match is good. Health insurance requires employee contribution but has low co-pays. Tuition remission for current employees means you can get a free master's degree. Pre-tax commuter rail passes are useful.
Postdocs get very little explanation of your benefits package by HR. Most information is passed on by the colleagues within your lab.
Pretty good benefits, really. Eight percent retirement savings 403(b) match - employee must put in 5% of their salary, the university puts in 8%.
there is NOT at all benefit package
