    Best thing is the wide range of benefits and the amount the UC system pays.

    Students can get free health care only if hired as a TA (teaching assistant) or GSR (graduate student researcher). Otherwise, you have to buy insurance either from the school or elsewhere.

    It is the most low cost comprehensive benefit package I've ever seen or experienced. They give you free dental and vision insurance.

    Great benefits for families, including medical insurance, dental, vision and vacation policies. Flexible work time. Cannot think of a con so far.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current GSR in Davis, California

    Best: Student health insurance is superb. Was able to get free physical therapy for my ankle and free counseling sessions. Worst: Parking permits are expensive, little to no retirement benefits.

    Great benefits package for health care, vision care, dental care. Wonderful retirement benefits, which balance out the lower pay you usually get at UC.
