The UC's health and retirement benefits are extremely comprehensive and worthwhile.
UC Davis has good professional network for career development. Insurance package for grad student is not very great, 20% co-payment
As a student, there is none for any job type that I ever heard about.
Great flexibility in terms of work; however, the poor pay makes it a workplace you don't want to stay in for long
There is no benefits package because this is a university.
As a part time student assistant employed by UC Davis I still was offered medical insurance and a very flexible schedule due to being a full-time student;
Sick hours after a certain number of worked hours and you were able to save with a retirement plan.
Medical/dental/vision benefits are great and relatively low-cost. However, the cost is lower because my pay is lower (the more you make the more you have to contribute-- bracket system). Maternity leave needs definite improvement, however. UC offers abysmal support ($800 a month), so you have to pay in to expensive supplementary disability insurance which only covers 60% of your salary while on leave (6-8 weeks).
The benefits package is great - full medical, vision and dental with a variety of plans to choose from including PPOs, HMOs and HSAs. The prices are very reasonable too, even when adding dependents.
Flexible hours of work and good management. If someone is a student they do everything to make sure education comes first. Management is friendly too!
