Great health insurance, standard time off, lots of sick pay. Main complaint for all new hires is the obscenely high pension contribution rate which is mandatory which is finaly capped at 11% but used to be adjustable. The pension system is a mess
Very good health coverage options.
The best thing about the benefits package is that health care is affordable. The worst thing about the benefits is that Tuition Reimbursement is really low and has been getting lower every year.
Great place to work if you want to be in public service.
The pension is a great benefit
The benefits are horrible. New employees are required to contribute 15% of your income to the pension without choice, there is no short term disability benefit which means unpaid maternity leave, there is an absence policy that doesn't allow you to use sick time, so even if you have it, you get in trouble for using it. There are no benefits that are better than another full time position somewhere else.
the worst thing about the benefits package is that it keeps getting worse for the new people coming in and they attempt to make it worse for the current tenured employees. This attempt always ends up in litigation wasting everyone's time and money.
Comprehensive benefits package among the best in this market. Unfortunately, new hires will be contributing a larger portion of their salary to support the general employees pension system.
ALL new employees get ready to pay into a 15% pension plan that you MST pay into, while employees that have been there for a while only have to contribute 5%. Don't forget about your furloughs too, 48hrs (6 days) of pay down the drain. RI-DIC-U-LOUS!!
The benefits are amazing if you are full time, but part time employees do not receive any sort of benefits. Not partial or anything regardless of how many hours you work and there is an absolute cap on hours to a max of 28 per week.
