  • Health Insurance(6 comments)

    Plans work but cost was over $500 a month just for medical another $80 month for prescription then add dental, vision, supplemental - adds up quick and pay check dwindles away. Great if single.

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(4 comments)

    Can build it up quick with the floating holidays.

  • 401K Plan(3 comments)

    CMU adds an amount equal to 8% of your salary to your 401k, regardless of the employee's contribution.

SEI gives you 8% of your salary for retirement even if you don't contribute. They also have tuition reimbursement for you and your kids.

IRA 403B CMU contributes 8%, Good access to Health Insurance

Health insurance options are good but the cost keeps climbing - one plan had an30% increase just last year. PTO is good. 403B is good -8% of salary. Tuition is free at CMU but you get killed on taxes and it comes right out of your pay-company does not support you in any way or reward you after completing degree. Have to wait 5 years for kids to be eligible and spouse is not eligible at all. Bus pass is free. Parking is very expensive and their is a wait list so you just have to figure it out on your own. HR not very helpful. WFH is not preferred by upper management and it differed based on group.

Competitive salary for Pittsburgh comes with a great 403B with 8% contribution of your salary to include max cap of your own contribution. Solid choices for medical benefits, free tuition for degree or courses at one of the best colleges in the world (CMU), free for your kids, and reduced tuition breaks at any other college (aligned with your job skills). Discounts on shows, programs on campus and in city. Access to medical clinic for free flu shots, discounted massage program, EAP, and counseling. Free bus / shuttle transportation on local transport with your ID. Free use of campus workout facilities including aquatic near where you work. Generous professional development program. Life insurance free for 1% and small contribution for amounts over this. Many employees received mobile phone allotment monthly. Free pizza and/or lunch for many meetings and semi-annual gathering like picnics, appreciation dinners, holiday or otherwise.

very good benefits including 401k, health, dental, vision, PTO and floating holidays, as well as tuition reimbursement and professional development.

Best thing is definitely the 401k contributions. CMU contributes 8% of your salary without you needing to put in a penny. Vesting period for that money is 3 years. Worst - complete lack of parental leave. Nothing for "secondary" caretakers, and 5 weeks at 60% pay for normal birth.

SEI staff receive CMU employee benefits package, with healthcare, retirement, etc.

Current Employee in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Above average PTO (Paid Time Off) Worst Short Term disability covers only 60% of salary but they still take 100% of insurance and parking. No supplemental policies are offered that could help during these times for example AFLAC.
