    Insurance coverage keeps getting worse; vacation and flexibility is totally dependent on the department you're in - can be good or bad. Rice does put money into the 403b so that is nice. No bonuses, bad raises

    401k and 403b are offered to employees - employees can take with them after a year of employment; vacation and time off were generous

    The Ph.D. student stipend is the highest among U.S. universities. It has a health insurance subsidy as well.

    Best is the time off. 16 days PTO to start plus a week off from Christmas to New Years, most major holidays and most bad weather shut downs are paid. Retirement is very good. They contribute 7% of your salary even if you don’t. This is the best retirement plan I’ve ever had. 6 weeks partially paid maternity leave. Insurance is a bit expensive if covering a family but the coverage for hospital stays/child birth is very good. Only a $300 copay. You have to pay for parking, which costs several hundred per year so that’s another deduction in your pay.

    No benefits here worth the time

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Graduate Research Assistant in Houston, Texas

    High deductible (minimum of $2,000), co-insurance and cost-sharing rate is 20-60%. This is definitely a group plan designed for young and healthy people only.
