  • Health Insurance(20 comments)

    They offer a HDHP plan and contribute $500 annually, but availability of quality doctors with openings for new patients can vary.

  • Sick Days(14 comments)

    Personally, I could pretty much have as many sick days as I wanted unless I seriously went overboard..

  • Retirement Plan(6 comments)

    The retirement plan is basic and not very enticing as an option. Seek alternative options if possible.

Current Professor in Fort Collins, Colorado

I have worked there for many years and have gotten to like the people who are there. There is a good relationship between students and professors on average and a strong community. Everyone works hard.

They have generous sick leave and annual leave accrual, but the fund options in the 401(a) have some high expense ratios.

Health insurance plan was like having no insurance at all. So many out of pocket expenses.

Former Research Associate in Fort Collins, Colorado

It's all pretty standard, health, dental, eyes, free legal advice hotline and some free mental health visits. They even give discounts for CSU based summer child activities. Worst part is retirement plan is through the stock market so your responsible for where your money goes.

Health insurance comes without dental/eye

Current Postdoctoral Research Associate in Fort Collins, Colorado

Not too expensive considering most stuff is covered and they give you $500 a year for whatever you need.

Former Graduate Assistant in Fort Collins, Colorado

As a graduate research or teaching assistant, your health insurance is paid by the graduate school as long as your have at least a 10 hr/week assignment and are enrolled in at least 5 credits. In addition you usually receive some kind of funding to pay for classes and/or a monthly stipend.
