    Best thing: 21 Vacation days, 12 Sick days. GA Tech school holidays as well

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Administrative Professional in Atlanta, Georgia

    The only issue that I have experienced is that the professional development is limited when it comes to non-research staff. Everything else is pretty good.

    The worst thing about the benefits package is when Apex & GTRI, for a supposed 6 months contract-to-hire position, infer for 11 months you'll be hired direct, and at 12 months being told you're going to remain a contractor.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Atlanta, Georgia

    Very generous retirement plans: mandatory 6% employee contribution and options of a) 2% per year income replacement (w/ 10-year vesting), or b) 9.24% employer contribution to Defined Contribution plan (w/ immediate vesting). Additionally offer optional 403(b) and 457 plans. Excellent options for employees building their nest eggs.

    Great benefits are one of the primary perks of working here. 22 hours of vacation and sick leave are accrued monthly, adding up to nearly 6 weeks vacation per year, not including the week of Christmas, July 4th, and other state holidays.

    Outstanding time off (8+ weeks between sick, holiday, and vacation for full time research faculty)

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Atlanta, Georgia

    Best: Ample time off. At 10+ years, earn 21 days vacation and 12 sick days per year. New faculty starts with 15 vacation days / year and 12 sick... still very competitive. GTRI is in the University System of Georgia, so there are many options for health, dental and vision. Worst: work from home policies are almost non-existent - done on a manager by manager basis. There is no maternity leave, only FMLA. If your spouse's employer provides health insurance, they won't allow your spouse on your health coverage. So spouse will likely have different providers, billing, etc..

    Great variety of healthcare options to choose from. GREAT 401(k) matching. 21 paid vacation days, 14 paid sick days per year. Unused days roll over each year.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Atlanta, Georgia

    Research Faculty fall under the state Board of Regents Teacher's Retirement Plan. If you stay long enough to be vested, the retirement benefits are far above most retirement plans in the area. Vacation, sick and holiday benefits also above industry norms.

    Best: Kaiser used to be one of the offered benefits provider. Worst: ZERO paid maternity / paternity leave.
