Great health insurance options overseas!
Sane as other federal agencies but require 45 minutes of lunch. Not negotiable; it's DOS policy.
Health Care, 401K, Leave policy
Health insurance, 401k Plan, and the time off(annual/sick leave) that can really add up.
Best Federal benefits that are on offer by any US Government Agency as far as I'm concerned.
It is the best thing about the job over the long run. TSP 1% automatic contribution and additional matching, full medical benefit with several provider options, full pension eligible for distribution at 62yrs after 5 years of vesting and with 20 years of service. All Federal Holidays paid, 10+ PTO days annual based on length of service and sick leave as well. The benefits can be why many people stay in the job even when the job isn't much more than that after awhile.
Good. Government work. The benefits are fine, but the salary is low, especially since it's very difficult for spouses to get work that is well-paying or fulfilling.
Standard federal benefits package— you can review on OPM’s.gov
DOS has a typical benefits package for a federal agency which includes health, life, retirement insurances
The best thing is that you get partially funded health insurance. The worst part is that everyone not working for the government things you have GREAT benefits (no dental, no optical, etc.). Social Security is considered part of your Government funded retirement! Yes, they offer paternity leave (completely unfunded).
