Only best things no worst things
There were no real perks for this job. It was offered through the university in the work study program. The only benefit was additional funds for school.
Pay is well below marketing rate, and exceptionally long vesting time for retirement benefits. Only 2 weeks vacation for first 5 years.
No flexible spending of investments.
Great health insurance, excellent vacation accruals. Due to the nature of university employment nice breaks during winter and summer
Room and board paid for.
Best: state time off + vacation + sick time Worst: WA benefits not as good as top technology leaders in the state
The best things are: time off accrual stacks up pretty quickly (earning just over 3 days per month for vacation and sick pay). There are multiple insurance and retirement options to fit any age range or financial situation. National holidays are paid days off. The worst part is: the annual pay raises are usually pretty insignificant 1-5% and not based on performance but rather union negotiations.
Best is the retirement package. Worst is no paid maternity or paternity leave.
Minimum wage, no chances of better pay unless you move on to teaching plus groups even then the pay is not much higher.
