    Several health care plans allow one to select a plan that best fits their circumstances. The pensions for employees of at least 10 years remain fully funded, but regrettably new employees are not eligible for pension benefits.

    The benefits are very good, excellent 401K matching, free eye and dental insurance and low cost Kaiser health insurance. 3 weeks of vacation a year plus separate sick leave time. Salary could be better, but in line with what the private sector offers.

    401K is so good because there are no bonuses awarded. LLNL gives 3.5% of your salary irregardless of what you put in. Then they match up to 6% of what you put in. So if you put in 6%, they put in 9.5% for a total of 15.5% of your salary each year. You can choose Roth, pre-tax (taxed when take out, not put in), or post-tax (taxed now, can take out before retirement or big life event).

    Best: vested immediately - 6% match 100% plus additional 3.5% from employer. Every other Friday off. 15 days of vacation for first year.

    Health Insurance through Kaiser was very affordable and good care. Vacation days accumulated separate from sick days. There was excellent paternity leave available through the employer and state.
