    Extensive benefits package with lots of options. Health plan can be a little more expensive than standard plans at other large organizations but it covers almost anything and since Drexel has ownership of a hospital and healthcare network there are even more discounts for health services. I and my wife have had very little out of pocket expenses for healthcare other than a few co-pays. Dental insurance is kind of weak, but then again that is true for just about all dental insurance policies. Vision Insurance is dirt cheap and has good options for things like glasses and contact lenses. Drexel also participates in a commuter program that allows you to purchase SEPTA passes at a discount rate that deducts pre-tax from your pay, which saves a lot of money in the long run in terms of lowering tax liability. You and you immediate family can continue education through the tuition remission program, including graduate programs. Several of my coworkers have gone on to get Masters degrees certificates, and some are currently enrolled in graduate programs.
