    I think the best thing about my benefits package is the high rate of vacation time I earn per pay period.

    Benefit Package is great and offers plenty of time off, for vacation as well as for paid sick days within the year.

    The best thing is we have medical insurance, vision insurance, and dental. Worst is the price is a little bit high for your child and families.

    Worst thing is waiting a year to participate in retirement at my age. Best part is the vacation and sick leave accrual.

    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)!

    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 recreation center is great, but the health insurance is poor
