    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Fairfax, Virginia

    The best part about working at Mason in terms of benefits is that the University closes during December for two weeks and I don't have to take time off, unlike previous employers. We do have to work during Spring Break, however, and through Summer semester if you are admin.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Research Assistant in Fairfax, Virginia

    The company insurance is great -- I was able to keep the doctor that I had growing up in the area for over 20+ years. My premiums went down and I rarely have copays! I definitely did not expect the insurance to be this good.

    Mason has amazing benefits, including time off, healthcare and tuition waiver. Salaries are low but faculty and staff are very supportive.

    Decent benefits package outweighs low salary for the cost of living in this area. Carrying whole family on health insurance and generous parental leave for faculty.

    Not much for part-time student workers, but at least I could get $20 gift card every Christmas with a cute Christmas celebration card.

    This was a student part-time job. There were no benefits but has great work/life balance.

    The best part working at Mason is that you get almost 2 weeks off during winter break.

    Balanced benefits package, excellent healthcare, class credits, and some flexibility in schedules with stacked holidays (like Christmas week off). Cons: paid parking, very low cash match for 401K, salaries below market,
