    The best thing about my benefits package is the retirement package. Although this has changed for those hired more recently, I believe it is still an exceptional plan. The benefits offered to those in the public sector are always highly criticized and under constant scrutiny for being a burden on taxpayers.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Income Maintenance Caseworker in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    Depending on seniority the medical benefits contribution from employee ranges from 1.5% to 3%. Salaries are increased approx. 1% to 2.5% based on union contract terms. Medical, dental, eye exams, set amount toward glasses. Depending on location there can be commuter benefits. PTO increases approx every 5 years. At 16 years I had 20 days PTO and 11 sick days. Pension contribution is not matched but there is a decent pension based on salary at time of retirement.

    Medical insurance gets worse every bargaining period as Tom Wolf takes more and more away from state workers. Vacation time is there, but if you take off your work load turns into a disaster when you get back.

    Good health insurance. Good retirement package. Lots of days off. Went in to private sector and don't have anything even close.
