    The lab provides excellent benefits, though. It as good as when they were part of the UC system. Retirement benefits, health benefits, and vacation are quite competitive.

    Used to have a pair of Golden Handcuffs with a "Real Pension", but when we switched over to being managed by a corporation (LLNS LLC) we lost that. However, 6% 401K match with a 4.5% 401K contribution from LLNS no matter how much I put in, is pretty good. Not golden handcuffs good, but still pretty good. Also I LOVE the affinity group options we have at lunchtime.

    Insurance was just average. They offer a nice match for your 401k. Salaries are below average for the Bay area.
