“Several options but Hugh our if pocket fees”
“Tier 1 only received this rating. New hires won’t get as good a benefit. ”
“The only thing that hasn’t changed yet. ”
The health insurance options are pretty decent, paid holidays off, leave time earned is comparable to other employers. One benefit that is lacking for this particular job is no option for overtime, even when the work necessitates it. The best perk, by far, is the flexible schedule options after the probationary period is successfully completed.
Tier 1 - job security
Pension is automatically taken from your paycheck, even if you prefer the 104K
The vacation time and sick leave plan was good.
401(k), but no match. Old-timers have a pension, but no one else does. Basic medical. NO dental, NO vision. NO bonuses of any kind. You get 12 sick days a year and 12 vacation days a year. That is the best perk of working for the state of Kentucky.
Ample time off and reasonable health insurance premiums.
Earning comp time to take off work was nice. Worry there is no retirement funds for future retirees
Benefits were one of the main reasons for working for the State, but that has changed. You still have some good benefits both not that attractive when you consider what else is available.
Incredible amount of misinformation presented in these reviews. Here are the facts: The pension was the best benefit, providing roughly 52% of your salary after 27 years of service, but IT IS GONE NOW. Current employees do not get a pension. Retirees that did get a pension will also get paid health insurance when they retire. New hires do not get this. Health insurance is expensive. You're on your own for dental and vision. There is a 401(k), but no match from the state. No raises. No promotions unless you start out really low grade (i.e. poorly paid). No bonuses of all kind. Educational Assistance has gone away. No career path. There used to be a thing called "flex-week" where you could telecommute (work from home), but that was taken away for almost all employees. Lots of negativity from the legislature. This results in regular cutbacks. Retention and recruitment is an alien concept to management.
Teir 1 still has a retirement. New hires have limited benefits.
