10% in 403B, good medical, dental and vision, 13 holidays, early release on Fridays during the summer. Free education for employees and free bachelors degree for dependents.
10% retirement contribution (no match required). Free tuition for staff and their dependents. Week between christmas and new years off (paid). Additional paid time off (Easter weekend, etc.)
as a student worker, everything is great.
SU has great benefits. They just changed their leave policy so you get 3 months paid leave for maternity/paternity. Also, the University is closed the week between Christmas and New Year's so you get off without taking vacation time.
Best thing is the vacation time. You get all the major holidays, and a week for Christmas.
Since we are a private, Jesuit University we get many holidays off that other companies or institutions do not in addition to the federal holidays. During the summer, we get an early release on Friday's at 3pm!
Challenging that health costs continue to rise but good overall.
I loved working here part-time while I was finishing my degree.
BEST: Extra holidays off including a free week of paid vacation for all employees between Dec 23-Jan 2. WORST: Pay, while ok, cannot keep up with the rising cost of Seattle living.
Seattle U's benefits package is very generous for staff. Medical, vision and dental along with retirement benefits. Very generous vacation and sick leave along with many university recognized paid holidays off. There are also a few days of volunteer leave each year to encourage staff and faculty to volunteer. Staff and faculty wellness program. One issue when I worked there was the insufficient staff maternity leave policy.
