Best thing -- This is a job that rewards length of service. A defined benefit pension plan, with benefits increasing as your length of service and age increases. Other benefits accrue with length of service -- more vacation time, opportunity to take an unpaid sabbatical (retaining job seniority), additional floating holidays, etc. Worst thing -- compensation is not based on prior experience, skill set, or on the job achievements. It is based almost entirely on pay at time of hire, which falls within pay bands for your job classification, plus small cost of living adjustments. Pay is no longer competitive with the private (tech) sector for IT Professionals.
Outstanding medical and dental benefits
I don't think there are any bad things? The benefits are amazing and the best compensation package I have ever had. [One tip, in interview, do not say it is why you're applying, even if it is]
The best thing is the health and the worst are the dental benefits. City of Seattle formerly had a tuition benefit but got rid of it. That was an awesome benefit that helped many city employees advance their education.
Health Insurance & Transit Benefits
Flexible workplace (depending on group)
healthy package. good accrual of time of. good health care. depending on where you work, reasonable ease-of-work around life.
For permanent employees the benefits are good. This is strictly for a seasonal job where only minimal benefits are offered. If you are a returning seasonal employee, you also get an annual bump in pay added to your hourly; it think it's around an added 5% per year you return.
The City offers good benefits, including health insurance, paid time off, and retirement. They have a fantastic PPL & PFL benefits but they do not extend those to siblings which is harmful to families who do not have parents or spouses.
Pension, 403b (same as 401k), free vision and dental, small fee for health insurance, most jobs are union, 12 week maternity and parental leave, employee to employee sick leave donations for serious medical conditions
