Great savings plan. You are required to contribute a mandatory minimum of 5.5% to which the University automatically contributes 8.5%. You just can't beat that type of match. 100% vested day 1.
The paid time off program for full-time, benefits eligible positions is a huge plus. If you are scheduled to work 80 hours a pay period, employees accrue 8 hours of vacation leave each pay period, with a max of 304 hours in their balance (very generous). The downside is the health insurance premiums and max out of pocket costs have sky rocketed within the last 3 years. Premium costs were not raised continually prior to the massive increase in 2017. Without any cost of living adjustment or merit increases to employees' salaries in 2018 with the rising costs of premium rates, a lot of employees are feeling the effects of these increased deductions. I am guessing compared to other companies within Manhattan, Wamego or Junction City areas are similar, but unsure. The university's health insurance benefits are no longer a selling point to a potential candidate in my opinion. Dental and vision insurance are comparable to other employers (pretty basic and expectant coverage). The wellness program is incentivized (brokered through Cerner) and if you have enough points earned by completing various activities or completing preventative care appointments, those points are counted towards a premium discount. Even with the discount I am paying more than what some other employers would offer in a larger populated area.
Ability to accrue an incredible amount of vacation, sick time, and compensatory time. Also, mandatory retirement allotment after one year of employment-employer matches and exceeds your amount (to a certain amount)!
The recreation center is great, but the health insurance is poor
They offer an amazing benefits package that consist of affordable health and dental insurance, vision insurance, lots of paid vacation and sick days.
Good work-life balance options, Manhattan, Kansas is also a very good place to live, with a lot of options for restaurants and an airport only 5 miles away
Great benefits for a full-time employee. As most places, it has gone up in premium price.
Retirement account is provided through the State of Kansas and includes an 8.5% employer added amount on top of the mandatory 5.5% from the employee.
Good base pay. The 403b Ira was generous, allowing me to contribute immediately because I had the same plan before elsewhere.
It is a great place to work. Every one here is very nice and friendly.
