The benefits package is straight forward and parts of it are very generous. Very unique to have a strong student repayment program
Listen up! You will never see a benefits package like this again. Take it and be very very grateful. Moreover, make sure you thank the FO for ensuring these benefits are available.
403(b) contribution is great, they invest 10% of your salary on day 1, regardless of employee contribution. Healthcare is good as well, starting in 2017 they offered a high deductible plan (deductible $2500) with an HRA. The HRA includes a debit card with half of deductible covered, in 2018 they upped it to cover your full deductible. Vision and dental is standard. PTO is accrued, 3.3 hours per pay period for the first year, 5 hours per pay period in your second year (I think this is right). All federal holidays off plus day after Thanksgiving and they sometimes give Dec 26th. Rates may differ based on exempt or non-exempt status. Commuter stipend is $150 a month for metro or can get discount on parking garage (still $70 a month I think). Telework is common. Professional development stipend is about $2000 a year (I think). The tuition assistance program is only suitable for people planning on staying at IRI for 5 years or more. You become eligible after year 1, then they contribute $70000 (approx) a year, but if you leave within 4 years you have to pay it back.
Benefits package was comparable to other orgs working in democracy development, but there was absolutely nothing in the way of perks or other motivational packages.
The benefits package at IRI is great! Generous medical/dental coverage, a 401k package that automatically matches a percentage of your salary without you having to directly contribute, and a standard vacation time accrual (that increases based on your years with the company). The only trouble is finding the time to use the vacation leave when you are busy with programming!
The best thing is that IRI contributes 10% of your salary to your 403(b) plan
Great benefits. 403(b): Retirement savings plan with IRI employer only contribution of 10%. Dental, Vision and Health are mostly covered by company. Transportation subsidy. 10 days plus 2 personal days off your first year.
After six months employment the organization automatically begins contributing 10% of your base salary to retirement. The CareFirst BC/BS medical plan is incredible.
The benefits are always being trimmed to "lower overhead", but a review of senior staff salaries shows that "cost cutting measures" only affect those who are not the organization's elites. Equally, like most things at IRI, benefits depend on who your friends are in the organization, as some favored people get more benefits than others.
Great benefits for a non-profit organization.
