Best is that benefits accrue upon hire date. Worst is that it's hard to move up in the ranks.
As an hourly position, I would say the benefits meet the minimum of Indiana Salary, which is not bad especially for students.
The best thing about the benefits is that IUPUI does add money to your HSA card if you choose the high deductible medical plan. As well, they offer a $25 reduction in insurance if you do not smoke.
IUPUI offers a very generous benefits package. 401K contribution is very good. Health Insurance is better than many corporations. The tuition benefit is not that great.
Benefits through Indiana University are excellent. University contributions to retirement are generous, cost of health insurance is fair, and coverage is good. Tuition benefits can be very helpful if you have kids headed to an IU campus (sorry, no discounts at PU) or want to continue your own education. IU also supports ALL their employees by covering same-sex partners and is pretty progressive overall. (There are even dedicated rooms for nursing mothers!) Other perks include discounted or free software/hardware through educational partnerships, inexpensive or free training on systems like Office or Adobe products, and much more. While paid time off isn't bad, you'll find the ability to TAKE your time off will vary based on where you work and what you do. Be sure you are clear on the policies in your unit. Same goes with flexibility to work from home, adjust schedules, etc. - just depends on the area in which you work. Overall, though, excellent benefits and a positive, progressive place to work.
I don't receive benefits as a student.
0 deductible, 0 premium health insurance.
Best: Good for Part time Job.
The best about the benefits at IUPUI is that they give the employee their deductible at the beginning of the year. They have PERF, 401 retirement, medical, dental, vision, long term, AD&D, life insurance and FMLA, but no short term. Non-exempt employee's earn their sick time and vacation per each pay period.
Something that has kept me working at IUPUI for so long is the benefits. Working in higher ed, you are not going to make the salary you could in the corporate sector. However, professional level staff at IUPUI start out with about 5 weeks of vacation a year. I currently get 36 days a year, which comes out to a little more than 7 weeks. They also contribute 10% of my salary each year to my retirement plan.
