    Fantastic. Good 401k match, reasonable scheduling, health and wellness is encouraged through on site gym and fitness tests.

    Average benefits, but nowhere near like private sector companies in the technical arena. Vacation accrual is especially lacking - starting is 3 weeks, at 10 years 3.6 weeks, at 15 years 4.2 weeks, then at 20 years you get 4.8 weeks. No pension, medical, anything at retirement. Ok match on 401k.

    Good benefits package overall; the health coverage has same-sex partner coverage, and it recently expanded to include autism therapy services. Decent (good, not exceptional) number of personal days and paid holidays.

    Health benefits are great, 401k about average, paid time off is adequate but not great for new employees, maternity and paternity leave are nonexistent, military leave is fantastic, as is tuition assistance.

    The insurance benefits as well as retirement packages are pretty solid. 401k possibility, with almost full-paid insurance.

    Generous 401k matching. 9/80 work schedules. Option for a high deductible health care plan with HSA. Vacation policy is pretty dumb - you are forced to use up to 4 of the alloted vacation days during a mandatory winter shutdown.

    Future employees receive 6% match 401k. Health insurance is (currently) Blue Cross and for an EPO I only pay about $140 per month, which I feel is pretty generous. Vacation allotment is 144.04 hours per year (18 days). Vacation hours increase by a small percent after 15 years of service. But the lab closes the week between Christmas and New Years, so one must use vacation time for that; however, one can choose "Leave Without Pay" to save vacation hours. Basically I think the benefits are really good at Los Alamos. They pay short and long term disability insurance, which only costs about $40 per month.

    6% match to 401(k). Do not believe there is any maternal or paternal leave
