    No choice in healthcare. Pension benefits aren't great.

    PERS 2 is awesome, pay 7 percent of your salary towards retirement, get 2 percent of your highest salary for each year you work, vested after 5 years. I worked 10 years at my last job, and got nothing for it, wish I would have started earlier. They also offer deferred compensation plans if you want to add an IRA on top of that. Medical insurance has 3 options depending on what provider you want to use. I pay NO PREMIUM for my spouse and I. This is one of the main reasons I wanted to work here. I was paying 250 a month at my old employer for a far worse plan. Old deductible was 2500 for just me, now it's 1000 for my wife and I. If I would have gotten the Kaiser Permanente plan, I would have 0 deductible and 0 out of pocket, and I think $15 copay. 12 weeks paid parental leave! LOVE the benefits, one of the best reasons for working for King County.

    Pension and savings plan are stellar. Health benefits are 100% paid for the employee, and almost always 100% paid for the spouse. Your employee badge is your bus pass -- free rides on KC Metro and Sound Transit. Work-from-home is allowed one day a week in the IT department.

    Compensation is challenging to change quickly unless you change roles. While you are guarenteed at least a 5% increase each year there is no change based on the quality of your work. This means someone doing far less will make dramatically more than you simply because they have been there a long time.
