    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    The good benefits will only kick in after 1-2 years of employment, however, there seems to be a high turnover rate, especially in admission.

    Good healthcare, sick leave, annual leave, and retirement. Free employee fitness classes and professional development through Lynda. Discounts on things like Capital Bikeshare and local hotels. Tuition benefit is great, but watch out for taxes - you get 3 credits automatically tax-free per year, but after that you pay taxes on the full amount (NOT the amount you pay with your benefit). If you can prove the course is necessary for you to do your current job better, you can get a tax exemption but no guarantees.

    "free" tuition benefit, Flexible spending account con - matching of the 403b didn't happen until 1 year in

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Materials Management in Washington, District of Columbia

    You'll get access to digital training platforms such as PluralSight, Lynda, AMA, and Global Knowledge, as well as access to Gartner articles. Great health package including a generous short-term disability plan. The package also comes with an optional legal assistance in case you're a troublemaker.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Special Assistant in Washington, District of Columbia

    Standard across the board, with a little extra time off due to academic calendar. Worst thing is the delay for certain benefits (403(b) matching, tuition remission, etc.) to kick in, but those are minor complaints about understandable policies.

    Decent annual leave, generous sick leave, and extra holiday "university" paid days. You earn additional vacation days with years of service. Health benefits were fine. Decent 403b matching.
