It was free when I started then was a big deduction once the reorganization happened and on top of that we didn't see a raise
The best thing was the retirement package. They used TIAA-CREF and I was very satisfied with the investment. Worst thing is the medical benefits. I was paying $600/month for family coverage. The benefits themselves are great but you are certainly "paying the price" for that. I have another job at a school and I have the exact same coverage and provider...it costs me $85/month for the same benefits at another school.
good coverage, use to be free no longer is.
Great benefits and wonderful people to work with...great place to be...lots of new and different things going on
Great benefits - actually outstanding for not-for-profit institution
Worst thing: New, hourly employees only accrue 5 paid vacation days per year, but the school is closed 5+ weeks for breaks, and not all employees can work through the breaks. Best thing: Health benefits are very generous.
While I was there, the benefits package was great! Because of the low pay, it made the job worthwhile. Right before I left, they said the benefits package was changing and that we would not be getting many of the amenities that we were previously getting. The Institute's decision to do that sealed my decision to leave. The job was no longer worth the low pay and additional responsibilities.
