Best things: lots of PTO (paid holidays and vacation + sick time accrued with each pay period), retirement contribution (starts at year 1 and independent of your contribution), gym on campus (small fee), health FSA, options for medical provider Worst things: paying for medical (to be more competitive, especially given low salaries, all benefits should be free of cost), tuition benefit for employees (tuition should be 100% covered)
It is hard to describe what the best thing about the benefits package at saint mary's was in so few words, but I will try my best to do just that, right here in this box.
Tuition remission, contribution to 403B
Generous time off package with paid major holidays. Employee children get tuition remission after one year of employment. Inexpensive dental and vision care.
Awesome 403(b), but SMC just changed their dental and vision from Delta Dental and VSP to all under United Health Care. Definitely cutting costs.
It is a really good benefits package
Great health benefits and amazing time off. Also, Saint Mary's contributes 8% of your salary to your retirement fund after one year of employment, regardless of what you contribute. You also earn 5 hours vacation, 4 hours sick every month and get nearly two weeks off at Christmas, two days at Thanksgiving, and days off for 4th of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day, MLK Jr. Day.
Vacation days increase with seniority, 403B plan
The best thing is that we pay nothing for vision and dental. The worst thing is that we're no longer on Delta Dental or VSP so hopefully we can keep our doctors.
You get to take 1 free class a semester/quarter towards a degree after 1 year of employment.
