    StarStarStarStarStar Former Program Manager in Providence, Rhode Island

    Salary is somewhat lower compared to other places, but the benefits make up for it in my opinion.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Providence, Rhode Island

    401K has 8% matched and become fully vested after 5 years employment.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Providence, Rhode Island

    All standard benefits are included: healthcare, dental, life, retirement. Though none of them are paid in full by Brown, they're generously subsidized. Standard 2 weeks of paid vacation per year, accrued monthly, plus 1 week off between Christmas and New Years.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Providence, Rhode Island

    I'm not sure if there is a negative aspect for the benefits at Brown. You'll be hard pressed to find better benefits elsewhere. Vacation and Sick time is abundant. Medical and retirement plans are fantastic. There are even more perks beyond that.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Providence, Rhode Island

    Includes a very helpful health insurance and a dental insurance, together with the university health services, all of which make the medical services very affordable.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Visiting Assistant Professor in Providence, Rhode Island

    Very good health, dental and vision, but it's expensive, even after the reimbursement every month (which you are taxed).

  • Dec 09, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Providence, Rhode Island

    Health insurance is good. Vacation time off is good, if you are a non-hourly (exempt) employee. Salaries are not the greatest thing here. Work environment is good.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Postdoctoral Research Associate in Providence, Rhode Island

    Benefits package was great. My wife had our baby and she had to go through a screening test for trisomy. It costs more than 5 thousand dollars and insurance covered that. Insurance even covered the breast pump and extra days we spent at the hospital.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Providence, Rhode Island

    Great 401k match and tons of time off.

  • Sep 12, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former science assistant in Providence, Rhode Island

    401k, self explanatory, salesforce used to track everything, very easy to understand
