    Absolutely everything is fantastic, the environment, the collegues, the quality of the research, the salaries and the benefits

    It's nice to have a package that includes medical, dental, and vision. It's unfortunate, as a student, that the package fails to cover fundamental things like an annual vision exam fully. The services provided are designed for healthy, young students, leaving older students with sometimes serious medical needs in the lurch. It's not worth the cost by any stretch.

    Free healthcare if you want to have Kaiser. Any of the decent packages will run you about $300 per month. Incentives for being healthy are nice perk, can earn about $380 per year. Free gym membership and subsidized fitness classes for about $30 a semester (can take 2). Positive work environment as you are surrounded by intellectuals in various disciplines. Flexible work hours, work from home when necessary, ability to make various wellness appointment such as visiting the doctor or dentist without much approval from managers, access to a vast amount of academic resources, best of all is the Faculty Club (available to any exempt staff). Cost about $300 a year to be a member, and includes free continental style breakfast from 730 to 9:30 AM and a light meal consisting of hors d’oeuvres etc. from 430 to 7 PM every day of the week

    Health insurance and Dental insurance great. Vision is good too. Over all insurance is good, though not as good compared to a staff member - they get way more perks!
