Good health care system, good retirement, good atmosphere
Nothing outstanding for benefits. Folks who had been working for a long time, had better benefits than what is offered now.
Berkeley Lab offers an excellent Benefits package. The Lab covers a generous proportion of premiums on Health programs. They cover 100% for both dental and vision. They Offer life insurance up to one years salary and you have the option to purchase more. They offer 2 different retirement options. One is a pension plan (which is not offered at most institutions anymore) as well as a 401k. They offer 15 days of vacation and you accrue 1 sick day per month. The work life balance is really something that the Lab takes a lot of pride in. The Lab does some amazing research that changes the world. Employees at the lab really believe in the Mission.
