    The best thing is the retirement plan (something that is increasingly rare nowadays), and the deferred compensation plan that allows you to invest pre-tax $ in your choice of stocks/bonds. Affordable and comprehensive health insurance is also pretty great.

    Great choices of insurance plans. Flexibility with telework and accommodating for temporary medical impairments. Retirement pension and investment options. Good vacation and sick days.

    It's really standard and the standard is subpar

    The benefits are about equal to similar agencies. Some concern about the future of the retirement system as states are finding it difficult to pay out promised retirement pay with cost of living increases. Medical plan is good.

    Benefits are beyond reproach; with an opportunity to select what works for you and your family.

    The retirement benefits are great! You have to work with the state for five years becoming vested. Then if you decide to leave after that time, you are guaranteed a portion amount of your salary for life. Medical benefits are phenomenal and at amazing monthly prices as well!!

    Excellent health insurance options (employee portion of premium ranges from $100-$300 for full family), dental/vision, pension and deferred comp, life insurance, AD&D, vacation leave and sick leave, paid holidays, flexible work environment, telework, Infants at Work), growth opportunities and training available. No paid parental leave unfortunately. But that's coming to all WA employers soon in 2020.
