  • Pension Plan  (3 comments)

    “The best thing about the pension plan is the high level of contribution from the employer. A larger base salary would have been preferred, though.”

    Great benefits package and time-off, but it is not easy to find what what benefits you have.

    The salary is about 30% lower than average industry price. But benefits package is very good and work environment is fair.

    Great people to work with and servicing the public...

    The package is very comprehensive and very complex. However, there is no HR person on site to explain anything, only a person who hands out the forms and acts an an intermediary, and the pension program, though relatively generous, requires ten years of tenure for full vesting. Since the starting salary is already low, the deductions for the benefits can really bite, and initial benefits are inferior (in terms of choice of dental plan, etc.). The benefits pay off most for those who stay longest. Subpar vacation and holiday time off initially as well.

    State provides 75% of Health Care which means you only have to pay 25% of the package. State employees don't want to leave the job because they have good retirement program.

    Lots of choices when it comes to benefits. Employee share is costly but not outrageous.

    Excellent retirement package. The medical benefits were good, although the premiums should be lower based on other public employees in the jurisdiction.

    Best: Excellent benefits from the state of CA, like working for a large corporation. Specific benefits are negotiated by union agreements. Good leave policies, flexible work schedule possible depending on job. Nice retirement package after age 55. Health insurance premium is paid in full after 20 years of retirement. Worst: You have to work at the state for a very long time to achieve full benefits. Benefits package, especially retirement, keeps changing as some legislators and the public want to make this harder to get.

    Having a defined benefit pension is one of the best things about working for the State of California, as well as the package of fringe benefits (health, dental, vision) and the opportunity to also save on your own via a 401K or 457 account. The worst thing about the benefits package is that the State typically provides a lesser quality of benefits for "new hires" and while the State may allow you to buy up into a better plan later, depending on the politics of the moment, for those who wait too long, the cost can be prohibitive.
