Retirement benefits. Great health insurance- dental and vision included. Union representation of technical employees.
Interns don't get benefits while working there. But the long term workers get some good benefits.
The health insurance is cheap
The package is great! Great company! Although sometimes the lab is run like a corporate.
health insurance is cheap, work time is flexible for some times, salary is low for postdoc in National Labs especially considering the living cost in berkeley is much higher than other places like ANL, BNL, ORNL and LANL
No time off, you accrue vacation but no time off ever!
everything about the benefits are good, because i am just a postdoc
Good retirement and pension plans. Need to put in a certain amount of years to avail full benefits.
Great pension plan especially if you joined prior to the changes that were implemented in 2015/16. Also good health, dental and life. Vacation is just ok - 3 weeks with an additional week after 10 years but the Lab also shuts down between Xmas and NY.
I like the comprehensive retirement plan, that includes a pension plan and health insurance coverage after retirement for employee and spouse.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
