    Vacation time, work from home, plenty of sick time. No paid family leave for any employee that isn't a physician - abysmal....

    401a with 50% matching up to 3% of your salary, plus additional 403b where DFCI automatically contributes a % of your salary into a retirement account. Start with 15 vacation days, increases by 5 days at 7 years and 15 years. Very generous sick, personal, and floating holiday policy. No paid parental leave whatsoever, and very limited assistance for child care. There are a few local day cares that have spots reserved for DFCI employees but they are ridiculously expensive. DFCI provides a small subsidy for child care if your total household income is <$90,000 per year. Good discounts on things like computers, amusement parks, cell phone, movie tickets, local gym memberships, etc. Lots of professional development opportunities (seminars, classes, etc). Tuition reimbursement is minimal and maxes out at $3,500 per year after you've worked at DFCI for>3 years. I think it starts at $1,000 after 6 months employment. Flexible spending and dependent spending accounts available, optional dental and vision insurance, pet insurance discounts, etc.

    Dana-Farber covers as much as they can - even subsidizing transportation costs.

    Best- T-pass discount, generally like Harvard Pilgrim insurance. Worst- lack of paid maternity leave, not very flexible with work from home options
