    It provides free parking and you can join free PSC membership for volunteers. Work schedules are very flexible.

    The health insurance is pretty good, you also get a membership so you can take advantage of what the science center has to offer.

    Temp staff doesn't receive any benefits heath benefits. Free imax and laser-dome tickets were cool. They do have monthly all staff meetings where they provide snacks, which was fun. Decent employee discount in the gift shop and the cafe.

    Full-time staff are given 12 floating holidays a year with one available each month and can stack up to 12 at the end of the fiscal year. Sick time accrual is adequate. Vacation is 2 weeks a year until 5 years full-time. Then, it's 3 weeks a year until 10 years full-time. Then, it's 4 weeks a year! No matching retirement plan. Medical, vision, dental benefits in one of two plans, PPO or HMO staff choice.

    Basically the only thing you gain are the free movie passes, and all kinda passes for the organization. Otherwise, you get poor pay regardless of being in Seattle. Cons of working for non-profits- Lesson Learnt!!!

    Pacific Science Center is a nonprofit, they do no offer traditional 401k, but they do offer 403b which is the nonprofit version of 401k. Enrollment is automatic and there is no matching contribution. They offer highly ranked Group Health healthcare, but coverage is pretty basic. If you have kids you can send them to some of their great educational programs at a discount. You also have access to lots of guest and movie passes. Part time employees get very little benefits while full time employees gets a little bit more. Overall, this is a fun place to work.

    No employer match for 403(b) and general lack of knowledge or enthusiasm about how one should save for retirement, at an age.
