    Standard gov benefits including 5% TSP (401k) match, ample time off (6 hrs/pay period after 3 years) and the ability to accrue sick leave. Use of benefits (leave) may be stifled depending upon office management.

    Solid TSP (401k) matching to go along with transit subsidy (some regions) reimbursement. The EPA, like the rest of the government, has pushed for more increased work-from-home capability.

    There are many options. In general, most government jobs come with great benefits.

    For myself, the people with whom I worked have been the greatest thing about any job. I also gained very interesting experience in the environmental science and policy arenas. Financially, I was very happy with my compensation package. The Thrift Savings Plan is great for retirement savings, and the agency will match up to 5% per year. It is like a 401k or an IRA (pre tax money goes in, but if you meet certain qualifications you can also make contributions that are post-tax money similar to the Roth IRA). Your contributions can be invested in a variety of funds that include stocks, bonds and government securities.

    401K Match up to 5% in TSP which is a fantastic benefit for government employees. Fairly standard paid time off- 4hrs of vacation per pay period until you have vested 3 years of service, then 6hrs/pay period.

    Contractors and post-docs are treated as second-tier workers even though they work harder than everyone else. No job security. No benefits. A de-facto glass ceiling that handicaps people's professional development. They essentially break Department of Labor laws, but it's not worth fighting for any one individual.
