  • Health Insurance  (14 comments)

    “It covers a lot if you choose the comprehensive plan. In this respect it's very good. The only drawback is the price.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (5 comments)

    “Hourly employees start to accrue at 10 days per year. Exempt employees start to accrue at 24 days per year. Why does one class of employee rate...”

  • Sick Days  (5 comments)

    “14 per year is the standard accrual rate, if i am not mistaken (keep writing. 20 this is an attempt to write 20 words minimum).”

    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 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).

    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.

    Great 401k match and tons of time off.

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

    401k, they guide you to understand how you will be paid, always open to questions,

    the food and free gear really

  • Mar 13, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Postdoctoral Research Associate in Providence, Rhode Island

    You have benefits, but they don't expect you to take vacations. That's the reality of a postdoc

  • Mar 01, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current PhD Student in Providence, Rhode Island

    Excellent health care services. No retirement savings opportunities or other 'typical' parts of benefits packages. But more than enough to live in Providence for 5 years when you are in your 20's.
