    The best benefit is the 403a,b match ratio which unprecedented, lab input is 9.3% irrespective of employee's contribution. The number of vacation days for beginners (26 over the year) are much more than the average industry. Health insurance is on the pricier side. Tuition reimbursement is great at close to 85%. The other benefits listed on the website-housing assistance, home mortgage assistance- are not provided to all employees sadly.

    24 days vacation and retirement is actually very good - hence the old folks not going anywhere

    I was not able to get a full grasp of the benefits package during my time there but I am aware that there is about 5 weeks of vacation offered which is nice.

    The BEST thing about the PPPL benefits package is that it mirrors the Princeton University (PU) package! Health, dental, vision options are available for both in/out of network care; and the retirement contributions are higher (9.3% Employer Contributions) than any I have seen. PPPL/PU also has an excellent and free employee assistance program that assists with balancing the needs and demands both inside and outside of the work place.

    The best thing is that Princeton University actually provides the benefits to staff employees. The benefits compensation is significant - particularly for people with children who are looking forward to college tuitions down the road.

    You get max vacation (24 days) at the beginning, but it won't increase beyond that, even after 40 years of working there. They have a 401k, but the call it a 403e. It's virtually identical. The tuition assistance is negligible for the employee, but average for the employee's children. If a married couple works there, only one can claim child tuition assistance. They used to have a special home mortgage program for most people, but recently changed it to only apply to very high positions. They claim that their benefits are highly competitive, but in reality, they are pretty average.
