    Health Insurance coverage is good but shared premium too expensive; new employees need to pay portion of new modified retirement plan; pay match fund for the deferred compensation plan. vacation plan is good. 11 paid holidays and 12 sick day off per year.

    Best: 401(k), easy to accumulate a lot of vacation time Worst: rising costs of medical insurance each year

    Not many options for retirement savings. If you choose the basic insurance it's inexpensive.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Evidence Technician in Bakersfield, California

    Benefits are always paid. Employee must contribute to the benefit package. Defined benefit plan coupled with a defined contribution type plan. Not really worth it considering what the private sector offers with higher wages.

    The benefits are great. There is no company contributions to 401k, but health benefits are good
