Very generous benefit package. 75 percent of health insurance paid, dental, fmla etc
There is a pension, which is rare these days, but the employee contribution is very high for newer employees and social security benefits are reduced.
Best part of working for the State is the pension benefit, followed by vacation and sick leave.
The benefits were pretty good. I was in a union position, which at the time paid better than a similar "management" position that was also open.
Commonwealth contractors have no benefits or paid time off
They offered the health care spending act. Very helpful when you have young kids.
The benefits package is decent but not the best. The Commonwealth is very transparent with their benefits package and provides this information on their website. Some benefits are available through union membership which shuts out management employees. For new employees Commonwealth pays 75% of the full cost premium and the employee pays the remaining 25%. For new employees, there is a two-month waiting period for health insurance, life insurance, long term disability insurance and the health care spending account. No 401k but employees can enroll in a 457b deferred compensation plan to supplement their pension contributions.
I wish there were more/better transit benefits
exspensive, need better benefits for the amount we pay!
Poor coverage for health. Dental is reimbursed through the union. Must be in the state systems for 10 years to be vested in the pension.
