    Paid tim off is excellent, but it can take a long time to build up.

    Great Benefits! You're working for the DOD, so you'll get the benefits for working for the US. Can't really think of a terrible benefit.

    The benefits and job security help balance lower salaries compared to private sector, but watch out for proposed changes to federal benefits

    Benefits with the federal government are awesome.

    PTO, sick leave, life ins, health ins, and TSP (401K) with matching up to 5% are good benefits. Long Term Health is not a great plan.

    The health insurance is outstanding. SPAWAR strives to provide its employees with opportunities for higher education and professional development. Many of these opportunities are totally free, additionally tuition reimbursement is also available for employees.

    The best things is the amount of time off we can obtain for illness or vacation. Our health insurance is pretty good too. The worst thing is there are discounts and other benefits that the private sector or mission funded commands can provide that SPAWAR Atlantic can't because we are part of the federal government or because we are a Navy Capital Working Funded command.

    You have a large list to choose from and from there can decide what tier you need. It's all pretty affordable.
