    You'll be forced to plan for retirment

  • Dec 08, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Teacher I in Colorado Springs, Colorado

    Health Insurance is expensive and PERA is not stable

  • Oct 04, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Denver, Colorado

    Consistent is how it is issued for all employees. Very little subjectivity.

  • Oct 03, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Network Administrator in Denver, Colorado

    The pay was not good compared to the private sector.

  • Jul 07, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Denver, Colorado

    PTO and retirement are above average. Medical/Dental premiums are affordable but the insurance policy (co-pays, out of pocket) are below average

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Communications Specialist in Denver, Colorado

    Good vacation, health insurance and RTD pass.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Telephone surveyor in Denver, Colorado

    There isn't a best thing. They take so much out of your check just to pay for health insurance.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Denver, Colorado

    Health care is the worst part of the benefits package as there are basically two options and neither of them are comprehensive enough to cover costs if anything major occurs.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Denver, Colorado

    Best: Health insurance, holidays, annual leave, and sick pay. Worst: PERA used to be a great benefit but is beginning to cost more than the value. Employees currently contribute 8% of their pay. Due to poor leadership at PERA, this may soon turn into 11% with a provision to go to 13%. Not many State workers I know can afford to have 13% of their already low wages taken. Compared to the 6% private sector employees give to social security: Anyone considering State employment should take a hard look at if they can afford this.
