“Although everyone can work from home, they don't give funds for equipment or internet required to work from home. All you get is a laptop and maybe a monitor. This is a pretty big issue.”
“Parental leave was recently increased to 6 weeks, which is great, but of course, we could always do better as a country on that front.”
Open sick leave is nice if you are able to use it.
Remote first, wellness stipend, tremendous flexibility, unlimited sick time are all wonderful. PDT stipend and budget feel less accessible.
Unlimited sick time is great
Company perks of unlimited sick time and all remote work were very nice. Parental leave was also increased recently to 6 weeks paid. There was paid volunteer time (16 h/year), which was nice, but pretty difficult to use during the pandemic. However, 401k match was a flat $$ amount and health benefits were quite expensive. Professional development stipend is pretty low, so much so that it doesn't really cover much. There were a number of optional benefits (pet insurance, identity) but those weren't attractive to me.

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?

Agree? Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced Friday that parents will be given the choice of whether their children follow mask rules in school this fall, challenging federal guidance and local school districts in what critics called an “irresponsible” and “appalling” decision amid a surge of infections.

What if you are mandated for a Vaccine? We know there are different ways to look at this; moralistic, political, personal and professional. Never the less, I'm pretty sure of the dilemma each of us will face in the near future! I'm interested hearing what your thoughts if confronted?
Fully flexible work schedule and location. Good healthcare options (but a bit pricey), stipends for wellness and professional development.
Excellent benefits package. Health care is comprehensive and reasonably priced; time off is more than adequate in combination with the flexible work schedule; and the 401k match is competitive.
The best part of the RSC benefits package is the unlimited sick time - particularly priceless in 2020!
Flexibility to work from home is the best!
No benefits for freelancers, only pay by assignment (typically $21-$31 for a 3,500 word scientific document that is technically challenging; results in hourly wage of about $6-$7/hr)
