    “There are two options: One can use the on-campus medical facility, which is very good, or one can also go to any external providers of their...”

    “The MIT retirement plan provides for matching funds and many investment options.”

  • Pension Plan  (4 comments)

    “Vesting is after 3 years. It is all MIT monies and payouts based on salary and number of years employed. Very few employers have this any more.”

    Great company benefits, including 401k with match, volunteering opportunities, discounted tickets at theater events and concerts, great work life balance. Generous vacation time compared to other places.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Technical Staff in Lexington, Massachusetts

    15 days of vacation in year 1, 20 days starting in year 2, and a bonus 5 days once ever 5 years. 5% 401k match, MIT pension (3 years until vested), 5 days of family medical leave, "unlimited" sick leave (within reason), 4 weeks of parental leave (new in 2018), great health care but a bit expensive.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Intern - Hourly in Lexington, Massachusetts

    There are no benefits for interns I don't know what I'm supposed to put here but there's a 20 word minimum. I got an hourly wage.

    The retirement and health benefits are very good. However, there used to be a child tuition benefit (i.e., full tuition at MIT or an equivalent tuition at another school) that has since been discontinued.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Assistant Technical Staff in Lexington, Massachusetts

    Good benefits to me (4 weeks PTO/year, unlimited sick leave, 5% match on Fidelity 401K, roughly 13 paid holidays a year). Cons are that it can be somewhat difficult to actually get information on all the benefits available (need to ask around in HR).

    The overall benefits package is very good. The healthcare cost per month was higher per month then my previous position, but the market has changed so much now. The healthcare plan is very good though. Vacation time is generous and you often get an extra day off around holiday time. You are an MIT employee and can get perks available via MIT directly as a staff member.

    You need to stay for 3 years to get the pension. You only get $5,250 for educational expenses. I heard that the health insurance really sucks, luckily I use it through a partner and not MIT.

    Good vacation time. Good benefits. Overall, the benefits are pretty competitive.

    The benefits package is extensive along with the paid holidays. Its nice to get extra days off on top of 3/4 weeks vacation time.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Coop in Lexington, Massachusetts

    Worked as an intern in HR so while I ddi not have beenfits, I did have to know them pretty well. The benefits at MIT LL are great just like any other government job. Good healthcare and dental and 401K. I also was paid on the snow days we had when we didnt have to go in and I was an intern!
