    Excellent health insurance and retirement benefits if you are in a uniform agency.

    Bureaucracy makes it difficult to access benefits. No maternity provisions.

    Pension benefit grouped into tiers, with each successive tier receiving less benefit for more buy-in.

    Honestly, the benefits package is pretty standard. There are a few plans to choose from and the cost/coverage varies widely - I was on a plan where I paid a ton for great coverage, and then a plan where I paid less but had difficulty finding any therapy practice that would take it. The dental is fine for 2 appts a year but I don't know how much it covers beyond routine check-ups. I've had to pay a lot of vision costs out of pocket. The vacation time is nice, and my particular office had the opportunity to gain comp time (as opposed to paid OT) with great flexibility to use it as needed.

    Salaries are stagnant. Don't expect a raise pass your initial salary. 401K fees are low. Pension sucks. Healthcare is overrated.

    it's all cost-based. if you're willing to pay a premium out of pocket from payroll deductions, you can get a really good plan. there are a big variety of health care companies to select from.

    Benefits are great and if you can make it long enough I hear the pension is worth it.
