“Best: Using the local hospital networks is relatively easy re: claims. Worst: changes in employer-supported insurance benefits have lead to increases in employee responsibility in 2022, even for low-deductible and in-network procedures. I have spent $2000 (as of August '22) for basic preventive care, not counting co-pays and the cost of my premium.”
“HR changed the plan to something highly controlled, disrupting previous investment vehicles we had been able to benefit from. College cut matching to our plans, to 0% in 2020-21, then to 5% in 2021-22 (had been 9%).”
401k match, tuition remission, generous PTO
Great benefits including fitness membership and staff meal plan
Best: if you happen to have a child, they can get basically free tuition. Worst: if you DON'T have kids, you don't get this benefit, of course. And you get little else. Changes to insurance reimbursements mean that our dental insurance is useless, as there are only two providers 'in network.' Health insurance leaves a lot uncovered and is costly out of pocket, even for low deductible plans. Retirement matching was cut to 0% in 2020-21, and put at 5% in 2021-22, but had been at 9% previously. These benefits are laughably bad.
The benefits of working in higher education is amazing. You get alot of paid holidays, along with low cost medical, dental, and vision.
Included housing and meal plan.
Company actively prevents part-time employees from becoming eligible for benefits.
Flexible and comprehensive benefits package
Benefits are ok, health insurance is decent. Maternity/Paternity leave could be better.
Generous PTO, good benefits package, changes in the retirement plan occurred as a result of COVID.
A bit on the expensive side but all in all a solid benefits package and generous sick time policy
