  • Health Insurance  (12 comments)

    “Good mix of options although not always clear. Centrally done in DC which can be frustrating. Good amount of employer buy-in”

  • Sick Days  (7 comments)

    “4 hours of sick leave can be earned every 2 weeks and you can accrue as much as you want without losing it”

  • Job Training  (7 comments)

    “Plenty of opportunities for technical or leadership training, so long as Congress actually passes a budget.”

    Benefits are oustanding. Retirement health coverage and leave. Depending on your region deployment support is valuable as well
