    Good graduate student health insurance (not sure if its the same for other employees), covers dental and vision too. Got free glasses every year with vision care. Dentist one has low maximum.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Executive Director in State College, Pennsylvania

    Penn State offers excellent benefits including tuition funding, healthcare and retirement benefits that far surpass most corporate benefits. Frequently these can make up for the salary differential between higher ed and the private sector. Huge value if you have a family or are planning to earn a degree.
