The medical insurance options for nonunion staff are abysmal: very expensive and poor coverage.

Overall benefits are good, but because of the pandemic they eliminated employer contributions to retirement accounts.

The New School had a decent health plan (with United Health), but during the pandemic switched to an inferior plan with Aetna as a cost-savings measure. They claimed the plan was comparable, but there is growing evidence that it is not. Sadly, employees are paying the same for the inferior plan, even as they face salary reductions. The New School also once contributed to employee retirement plans, but again, they cancelled this benefit during the pandemic (no sign that it will return). In general, the university attempts to remain competitive with other universities in New York City, but it ultimately doesn't care about its employee's well-being.

The benefits are pretty comprehensive and the insurance offered are really affordable. Like most places though, it's a bit hard to navigate and figure out what your options are.
