Paid time off includes vacation, personal and sick days. You start with 10 vacation days and benefits kick in immediately. You pay into the pension system and have the option to add to a supplemental retirement fund (no company match)
That they still offer it!
Best - very generous Paid Time Off policy Worst - cost of insurance
Incredible amount of days off
Nothing was wrong loved it
Heath and dental insurance are more than fair.
Benefit package is great for Tier 1 employees (started employment prior to the implementation of the tiered benefits system), but not as good for those who started at a later date. Decent insurance for current employees, although it is not free. Retirement for tier 1 employees includes free insurance and decent pension, depending upon years of service. Vacation, sick, personal days and State holidays are abundant, especially after 5 or more years. Pay at some levels may not be as great as the private sector (I.e., some professions, such as attorney, engineer, cpa, etc.) but may be greater than private sector in other areas. However, a big current drawback is that Illinois is not paying its insurance bills in a timely fashion due to budget issues.
Decent medical coverage, but almost no dental insurance. Dental claims can remain frozen, meanwhile you must pay out of pocket.
Earned benefit time such as Vacation time and sick time are the best benefits. Health insurance is available but very expensive especially if you have young children. The worst is lack of training for employees especially when programs are constantly changing yet expecting the best results.
They give you personal days but hassle you and deny approval of the days and you have to call off
