Located in Waterbury, Connecticut, Post University has a vibrant campus and an excellent online program.

The PTO package and holidays are outstanding .
Benefits are highly competitive for CT
At a time when employers are increasing benefits and trying to do what is best for their employees Post is cutting what they offer and making it more difficult for a select few. Post did offer a fantastic paternity leave, which considering the average age of their employees was very beneficial. But they have just cut their paternity benefits by 40%. Post also used to offer an opt out bonus to its employees, which makes sense as those individuals are not using a company sponsored plan thus saving Post costs. That was also removed cost employees that had it as a benefit $70 per month. 401k contribute continues to remain virtually non existent, considering the revolving door of people coming and going a 401k is an excellent incentive for employees to stay long term and is something employees has been asking for an increase in. PTO is great, if you are brave enough to use it. On an 8 week term do not expect any breaks on your goals, if you take 2 weeks off you are still expected to hit the lofty goals as if you worked the full 8 weeks. Sick time is great. Great employee and family discount to take classes.
Keeps getting worse. While most companies are trying to provide more Post is taking important aspects away. Health care was always pretty decent, while the cost has not gone up it was always expensive for levels of coverage provided. Recently they have cut paternity and maternity leave by 40%! And have completely removed the opt out bonus if you chose to use your spouses insurance. At a time when most companies are trying to encourage you to use a spouses plan, post is cutting the benefit of doing so. 401K remains stagnant and virtually non existent. If you want to retain employees long term and non have such a revolving door a good 401k is a great incentive to have people stay. PTO is decent, not always the easiest to use when you are judged on hitting your goals. If you take a week or two you will still be expected to hit a goal which is a stretch working the full 8 week term let along having to do it in 6 weeks. Sick time is great. Great employee discount to take classes.
Great PTO (you will need it) Great maternity and paternity leave. Good health and dental although expensive. Good tuition benefits, would be nice to have employees with degrees be offered contributions towards their student loans, otherwise its not a benefit for everyone. Offer fitness benefits but only locally if you live outside of Waterbury it’s not a real benefit. 401k is virtually nothing (really needs improving) Most benefits or “perks” are centered around downtown Waterbury and campus. No real benefits if you commute to campus like most employees.
Post offers employees Great Benefits. Time off, 401k
Very pricey for low salaries
Absolutely no benefits for part-time faculty
The best thing about the benefits at Post University is the amount of PTO employees receive. I know Executives at other companies who do not receive as many hours as I do, and I am in an entry-level position. One thing that I wish could be improved would be the 401k plan. There is one available, but the University does not match a high percentage of the employee contributions.
They have a great time off package and from what I've experience never any issue with taking time off.
