“Free insurance offered by the hiring department for Postdoc Fellows”
“My boss was very flexible”
“They were very understanding of this”
It was a great time, very comprehensive understanding of the role, and responsibilities.
Excellent benefit package at this university system
Vacation and Holiday days are excellent. Sick days carry over and accumulate. Employee contributions to other benefits can be costly.
Free health insurance offred by the hiring department for PostDoc fellows
Best: Paid leave time and vacation Worst: Healthcare insurance package
Pretty good health insurance under the 80/20 plan (one of several options). You can choose either the state retirement plan or private (eg TIAA Cref), but you can't change your mind later. So be ready to make that decision quickly when you start
The benefits package is comprehensive. Everything from the health insurance to time off are more than adequate.
Only basic insurance. No other benefits.
The health insurance is bad (high deductible) and it is too expensive to put my family on it.
Pros: Flexible work schedule, generous vacation and paid holiday Con: Can't use sick-time as vacation
