“High cost, doesn't cover much”
Good health and retirement package
The retirement is the best benefit. It is a pension plan that gains 7% compounding interest a year. The County matches employee contributions by 225%. You can build vacation time up real fast. You get paid vacation, deferred holidays, personal days, and sick time. Good luck taking it though with how short staffed they are. The health insurance is bad, and is expensive if you have a family. If you have a spouse and two kids, expect to pay around $700 a month. The premiums, co-pays, and deductibles get higher every year.
Best benefits I have ever received. They match your contribution at 250% 8 weeks of paternal leave without touching your own sick/vacation days
Good benefits but highly stressful
Strong healthcare benefits plan. 12 holidays per year, 3 personal days and 4 weeks of sick leave & 4 hours vacation leave per pay period. Retirement plan.
Typical county benefit package. Mandatory percentage goes to retirement that will vest after 8years. Sick time and PTO will accrue on each pay period but you'll be guilted when you try to call in sick or denied PTO due to staffing shortages. If you quit, you aren't paid for what is in your PTO/Sick balances, either.
Wish it included paid FMLA.
Excellent benefits to all employees
Excellent benefits package. I cannot think of anything more they could do that other companies do.
Health insurance covered by the county is decent, depending on which plan you pick. Decent retirement package, but you'll probably still have to work. Unless you stay 30 years or so, and have rank when you retire. Time off is hard to get at times depending on where you work, and who your supervisor is. Plus you're always understaffed. You get a take home car, but you pretty much pay for all of your other equipment unlike APD or Round Rock. I would prefer the money over the take home car any day.
