Generous employer matching that scales up with age and salary.
Best: Relatively flexible work hours, if your boss is fine with it. If not, expect to work extremely regimented hours with explicit instructions that you must come in and leave at very specific times. If you have children, the hours are family friendly. Worst: Low, non-competitive salary that does not match with what competitors offer. Pay raise each year does not even keep up with inflation, and the idea of a bonus is laughable. Very few federal holidays. Must stay three years to be fully vested in retirement plan. Zero professional development.
Great medical coverage for families with multiple dependents.
Excellent benefits that keep getting better and better! Very rich package overall and definitely better than most. Retirement plan benefits are outstanding.
Retirement contributions to 401K, 4 Weeks of Vacation with Sabbatical Pay
When you work for RAND as a contractor you get zero benefits.
Wonderful Medical Insurance Options that are mostly covered by the employer
RAND is a very flexible employer with a decent benefits package. Although senior employees certainly have better benefits (greater employer contributions to retirement accounts, more sabbatic pay), there are a lot of nice things for everyone on staff. The paid parking at Pentagon City Mall is a great perk in itself. The health plan is ACA compliant, not a grandfathered plan. The sabbatic pay concept is designed to reward you for taking time off by offering an additional 5% to your base pay for that time. Many employees are not eligible for that their first year, so don't let that surprise you.
Generous amount of paid time off
The best thing is getting paid time and a half (actually, 1.65x normal pay) when you take vacation. X x
