    Fantastic 403b retirement plan: effectively 10.5% of gross if you fully match. No match from the employer for the first year as a “vesting period.” After the first year, all matching funds are fully vested. Wonderful choices of mutual funds in the Vanguard retirement plan ... many with very low expense ratios and access to well-performing funds that are currently considered closed to new investors.

    The 401K contribution at the Lab is hard to find anywhere else. It's the best benefit, and one of the main reasons employees are so loyal to the Lab.

    The 403(b) match is exceptional. The best match I've ever seen. They also will do full reimbursement of furthering education.

    Part time study program includes full reimbursement for relevant degree programs. Truly exceptional benefit. 403B has 200% match up to 4.5% of your salary

    Tuition benefits are unheard of. You get 100% PRE-PAID tuition covered for up to 24 credits per academic year, and you can choose any university. It doesn’t need to be Johns Hopkins. You can take evening masters classes directly at APL if you wanted to go through John Hopkins, and a lot of JHU professors are full-time APL employees. PhD benefits include prepaid tuition + 200 ADDITIONAL paid time off per year during your PhD dissertation phase. That’s an additional 5 weeks of paid time off on top of what you’re already getting.

    The benefits are really good. Comprehensive health care and dental plan. Would rate 5/5 if retirement matching started at employment and not a year later.

    10.5% 403(b) company contribution rate is 3x many competing industry firms in the area.
