    As an employee of the University System of GA you can expect to receive a pretty typical university benefits package. No frills, no bonus, no real merit raise. Raises do not keep standard with cost of living when received.

    Pro: Pension with 2% for each year of service from average highest 3 years salary. Great PTO. Medical Insurance. Con: Little or no performance bonus. I only got once with 2% bonus in last 3 years.

    GTRI receives the same benefits package as all units in the University System of Georgia. Their ORP (403(a) retirement plan) provides an employee contribution of 6% and an employer contribution of 9.24% (currently, adjusts some years). The health plan is competitive and highly subsidized by the employer. Vacation, sick, and holiday leave is competitive (21 days, 8 days, 12 days each year respectively).

    Great benefits- love that you get the week of paid vacation during the winter holiday. Excellent matching opportunities. They don't have maternity/paternity leave- just FMLA, but I think that's pretty normal for government jobs.

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

    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.

    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.
