Benefits package is probably the best around. Generous, paid vacation and sick days, matching 401(k) ($1 for $1 up to 7%) and defined benefit retirement plans. Really great, flexible work arrangements that include a “9/10” or “19/20” schedule for select groups (i.e.: work 9 days get the 10th day off). For groups that don’t offer those “flex days”, telecommuting is available. The health, dental, and vision plans are competitively priced and offer a whole range of services, even at the cheapest options. Keep in mind, these benefits are great because they can’t compensate their employees at market rates, because of their quasi-governmental status.
Despite the continued erosion of the benefits, what is offered is still equal or better than most.
You get a pension after 5 years of working for the Fed, and you get 7% match on your 401(k) right from the beginning of your employment.
