Matching 401k for the first few percent, and a partially-paid healthcare plan. Cash "pension" is misleading, and not worth much against rising inflation. Private company = no stock benefits.
Not the best health benefit package I’ve had in my career. Standard HMO and PPO options. Dental isn’t paid 100% even for annual cleanings. 401K and matching is standard. The two standout benefits are 9/80 schedule and pension. Not too many private companies offer pensions, so this is a great benefit to have. Pre-pandemic, WFH was out of the question.

Benefits in line with rest of the industry, to include 401k match, medical, etc. Big difference is the pension. They recently re-designed how it worked. It's not as good as it was, but still rare within the industry.
They still have a pension in addition to a 401K with matching.
