    Great competitive time off package

    Pros: self-funded so it covers many things that other plans don't. However, the cost is high as are the deductibles.

    Health insurance, while adequate, could be a lot better. The deductibles and what it includes is just average.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Lebanon, New Hampshire

    Different benefits packages depending on date hired. If you were hired in 2011 or before, you started with more vacation than current employees will ever be able to receive. No sick time. Must use Earned Time on holidays even if your department isn't open on those days.

    Worst: New employees get 8.61 hours of "accrued time" per pay period (2-weeks) which must be used for all holidays, vacation, and sick time, so if there are holidays when you start you may not actually start to accrue until several months in. Only high-deductible health plan choices, which aren't too bad if you're single but if you add a spouse or kids it's pretty high. 401K is only good if you plan to be here for years, long enough for it to be vested, if you don't stay long enough you get nothing, and they don't match any of your contributions. Health coverage doesn't start until 30 days after you begin work. Best: Health plan includes the best infertility coverage I've seen (6 full cycles EACH for: oral meds only, injectable meds only, oral meds + IUI, injectable meds + IUI, and IVF). Fitness reimbursement for gym memberships up to $200 per year.

    When I first started the benefits were great now not so. 4 weeks vacation is great. Some areas are great to work in others are not.

    403(b) retirement plan with matching up to a certain percentage. Health benefits are expensive, especially if you have dependents. Cost of benefits has been increasing year over year. My family has elected to use my benefits from a different employer. My wife currently works at DHMC and we would not be able to afford the benefits of we had to be covered by her insurance at DHMC.

    The worst thing about the benefits at Dartmouth Hitchcock oddly enough is their health and dental insurance. The best things are their employee resources. They provide and enormous amount of financial, emotional, and personal resources to employees.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Practice Manager in Lebanon, New Hampshire

    The best thing, that is a good question and I can't answer that. The worst thing, the time off is lousy. As a new employee you get about 2 weeks a year. Earned time includes vacation, sick, and holidays, so after you take out holidays, and maybe a couple sick days you don't have much time off. 8.67 hours a pay period to be exact and pay is bi-weekly. They don't generally put anything into your retirement most years, raises generally don't happen and even when they do it's because the health insurance is going to sky rocket. Raises are mere pocket change for most. The Health insurance is a high deductible, its very expensive, you pay full retail at pharmacy until your deductible is met. The benefits have gone down the tubes. When there are layoffs, they are stingy with severance packages and place a lot of rules and restrictions on when and how you can get it. There are no perks, awful benefits, and anything that is good is looked at as a way to save money.

    Poor health benefits. Okay vacation. Should coordinate benefits with Dartmouth College so employees can move between facilities.
