Great benefits- generous matching 401K, health, vision, dental and life insurance. Used to have PTO and sick days but changed to only vacation days.
Best: Work Life Balance (not a benefit per se) Worst: Average across the board and low on the side of vacation and maternity leave.
Worst - There is a low time off allowed for the first 3 years of employment. compared to other places that I have worked. Best - After a year of employment, PBS contributes to your 403B, not even matching, but contributes. This allowed me to reduce the amount that I personally contribute so that I can have a higher take home pay.
The benefits package is comprehensive, solid, and competitive.
No Benefits: Freelance/Contractor No Show Pay not on time (breach of contract) Checks bounced
Pay is much lower than in the for profit sector, but the benefits package makes up for some of it, particularly the retirement contributions. Very generous employer contributions.
above average package compensates for lower salary--very good 401k, medical, PTO and other perks.
The benefits are great, one of the best perks of the job. Medical, dental, vision, 403B with employer contribution, lots of paid leave.
Best thing: 401k match. Worst thing: very limited vacation days. Only 10 vacation days per year, until you've been there for 5 years and it goes up to 15 vacation days per year.
Great benefits package - generous PTO and sick time, excellent health benefits, and the retirement savings plan is amazing. Also, not often, but some work from home can be done, which helps with the commute in the clogged DC area traffic.
