The benefit package for a state job provides needed coverage for me and my spouse, including medical, dental and vision plans.
The worst thing is that every year, we have to fight for our current benefits with the legislature. They are always trying to take away benefits. If they take away benefits, they sometimes provide a cost of living increase to even it out. However, the employees still lose. Very low pay and dwindling benefits!
Overall the benefits are pretty good. I think there could be some improvements made though. Would like to see paid maternity and paternity leave.
The benefits are good. You can choose a 401K only or half 401K and half pension. Sick leave and PTO is generous. Health insurance is inexpensive. Retirement benefits aren't as good as they used to be for newer employees. Pay could definitely be improved. Good place to work if you have good coworkers and bosses.
The State of Utah has incredible benefits for it's employees but interns don't get any benefits.
Old Tier 1 retirement system is great. 2% pension, retire after 30 years.
Health benefits are good for families.
Paid Vacation is 6 hours of paid leave per paid period after 10 years and 4 hours of paid sick leave per pay period.
The best benefit is the pension plan/401(k) plan. The worst part is that merit salary increases do not occur with the legislature generally approving only small COLA increases (0-2.5% annually).
Great benefits package with lots of coverage
