Showing 1–10 of 56 comments

Most Commented

  • Health Insurance  (13 comments)

    “Health insurance is very expensive (~350/month for single) but pretty good - no deductible and tiny co-pays.”

  • 401K Plan  (6 comments)

    “Match 5% contribution to 401k.”

  • 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.”

    401k with 5 per cent match plus non contributory pension. $5000 tuition reimbursement. Excellent health and dental insurance

    They like to point to their benefit package as something that sets them apart from other employers and for the most part it does, except for health insurance which costs more than my spouse's while providing about the same level of coverage. Being part of the MIT HR network definitely helps provide those nice perks (i.e. pension) that are not commonly found.

    3 weeks vacation, 4 weeks after a year, 10 paid holidays. Health insurance is stupid expensive (~350/month for single) but pretty good - no deductible and tiny co-pays. Match 5% contribution to 401k and actually offer a small pension plan on top of that.

    The engineers you get to work with are very knowledgeable and friendly. The projects are not trivial either.
