    Holidays, birthday (floating holiday) and 20 sabbatic days but you get paid 1.4x for the sabbatic pay!

Current Employee in Arlington, Virginia

Flexible work schedule. Health and dental insurance is great. I have (and love) Kaiser. A lot of different types of leave - personal emergency days, floating holiday, bereavement, jury duty, military, sick, sabbatic, etc. We don't get MLK Day, President's Day, Columbus Day, or Veteran's Day off. We get the day after Thanksgiving and either Christmas Eve or the day after Christmas, depending on what day Christmas falls on.

Organization is careful to keep up a competitive benefits package-- health, dental, vision/glasses, defined contribution retirement (with matching), disability (at a couple different levels), life. The addition of dental and vision was a step up for those coming from federal service, while the lack of a defined benefit retirement package is a step back from federal benefits but in line with similar organizations (NGO's, private sector).

Current Research Finance Administrator in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Tuition reimbursed $4K/yr; 4 weeks vacation to start if exempt employee; good health insurance options, sabbatical pay of you are exempt (they pay you to take vacation days); decent holidays. 401K match is pretty good, and other pre-tax benefit options.
