There is a fair PTO package. You accumulate 12+hours/month (dependent upon years of services) and have the paid holidays. When you aren't taking vacation, or are working really hard before and after vacations and therefore, use little no PTO- it adds up. However, there are mentions of not being able to take vacation unless you have all your work caught up. Though they hammer on about work/life balance.... so not cool. There is a pension- and people seem to love it. If you plan on being a long-term city employee it likely is a good deal. You need to work for the City for 5 years and then you are vested. But if you leave before the 5 years you walk away with nothing- no pension, no retirement etc. For me this is one of the worst benefits, as I feel the concept of pensions are outdated. I'd rather have an employer match even if it's minor (2-5%). When I leave this position, I will walk away with no retirement besides the money they forcibly took from my paycheck each time and put into the pension fund. Really I'll just be walking away with my money, with a penalty of cashing it out. Dental, health and vision seems to be good. Luckily I haven't needed to use it much so it doesn't weigh as heavily for me. There are some other minor benefits/discounts such as; discount on city recreational/gym memberships, heavily discounted RTD pass.
Government Pension is unique and helpful.
Great health insurance and incentives
Great benefits and work life balance.
Good health insurance - the City will match an employees contribution to HSA depending on the plan. PTO increases with years of service. They are working to offer better maternity leave.
HSA is awesome - rolls over each year so accumulates. It can only be used for medical bills. Can get donated time if someone will donate to you. Retirement matching is great.
Work-life balance, overall benefits, and “company” culture are best things about CCD. Lower-than-market pay is worst (the thought is that the benefits make up for the pay).
CCD Pays for your short-term disability in full.
Required and employer more than matched retirement plan.
No health insurance, vacation time, sick leave, holiday pay,
