I love having flex schedule and flex place options, as well as paid ecopass (public transit) and gym membership.
The Colorado Office of the State Auditor has the same health/dental/life insurance benefits as other state employees. They employees at the Office of the State Auditor are considered classified employees. They receive the same types of vacation (called Annual Leave) and sick time off. Sick leave is 6.66 hours per month, no matter how many years you have with the State of Colorado. Employees may carry over sick leave hours from year-to-year, but are capped at 360 total sick leave hours. If you exceed 360 hours, the employee gets 2 of those hours (in excess of 360 hours) credited to their annual leave total. Typically annual leave is set at 8 hour per month for employees with less than 5 years of work. With each 5 year increment, employees are given another 2 hours of annual leave per month. Therefore, at 5 years you get 10 hours, at 10 years you get 12 hours, and at 15 years you get 14 hours. Leave can be rolled from one year to the next. There is a limit on the total number of hours. Additionally, each year the State Auditor typically grants 16 hours of Personal Leave, which is essentially Annual Leave. However, this time cannot be rolled from year-to-year. There are opportunities to be awarded comp time. There are some restrictions on the amount of comp time that can be earned. Additionally, comp time can only be awarded if the employee has put in more than 90 hours over a 2 week period, and that 90 hours did not include vacation or sick leave. There are two health insurance providers to choose from -- Kaiser and United Health. Both providers have an HSA and an HMO/PPO plan. So you essentially have 4 plans to choose from. Dental insurance is provided through Delta Dental. Plans run from July through June. Open enrollment is generally in April and early May. In terms of the Office of the State Auditor specifically, there are several additional benefits. For example, all staff are issued a RTD Eco pass. Additionally, transit/parking costs are reimbursed up to $100 per month. There is also a small reimbursement for staff that bike to work every day. Staff in good standing have the ability to negotiate flextime or flexplace schedules. There are CORE hours of 9 a.m. to 3:30 that all staff need to be working, but generally you can arrange your schedule to meet your family needs. Staff are able to work from home using a fairly stable VPN solution.
