    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Denver, Colorado

    The benefits of government employment are very good, but it would be even better if the State covered childcare or provided programs.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Denver, Colorado

    There is a 30 day elimination period before short term disability begins. If you do not have enough leave accumulated to cover that 30 day period, you have to go on leave without pay until the 30 days is completed. So, for 6 weeks of maternity leave, you get less than 2 weeks on disability... even if your doctor doesn't clear you to return to work for 8 weeks after a c-section.

    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 02, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Denver, Colorado

    For new employees, benefits aren't as strong as they once were, but 401Ks are matched up to 8%

  • 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

  • Apr 23, 2018

    Good vacation, health insurance and RTD pass.

  • Mar 29, 2018
    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.
