Insurance rates and deductibles are significantly better than if you were to buy an individual plan. That is if you were to select limited plan which is equivalent to HMO. There are also supplemental plans available.
the best thing would be the ability to move around to different departments until you find one you like. The cons would be that there isn't enough oversight of poor supervisors/managers, its really political and the benefits are NOT what they use to be. The pay is not very comparable to private so in the past good benefits made it workable but those days are gone now.
I do not have the insurance plan, however, I only hear negative things about it from others who do; having to get "points" for certain things for employee & spouse; cost of insurance; etc.
Good health, dental and vision insurance. High deductibles
Best is having one and worst is it is nothing special.
Pension, even for newer employees, is good. It's unknown if it will still be there when you retire however, given the city's economic forecast.
worst thing about the benefits package is the dental. The only providers you can see are at castle dental. you cannot choose a higher quality dentist.
Retirement account being reduce every year.
Great health insurance plans & rates, although previous plans were better. This employer offers PTO, sick leave, floating holidays, recognizes all holidays. Plenty of Overtime. Good attendance incentives & much more
Sick time and vacation were the best. Supplemental insurance was terrible.
