Fantastic retirement benefits and great health plans too.
Paid sick leave only for student assistants
That there are no benefits
Benefits are among the best here. Choice of health plans, 403b, lots of vacation time. The only tricky thing is since it's a state employer, you have to elect to pay into your own ssi/ disability. I don't remember all the details, but it's different, and they'll explain it in new employee orientation. Just pay for it. If you became disabled, you would not have any money to draw from if you don't. Discounts on movie tickets, computer stuff, company perks membership. There is also a legal benefit you can buy. It sounded like a good idea at the time, but I didn't think it seemed any less expensive than a lawyer I can hire on my own.
Everything is great when I started. It is changing now.
The best thing is the pension if you can make it to the 5 years. Family insurance is kaiser that runs about 56 for you plus one.
Health insurance was the best benefit.
Benefits overall are pretty good. The only con is that you have to work there a full decade before you begin to accrue more time, which starts at three weeks. Accruing at five years would be a lot nicer. PTO is used as sick time when you use one or two days, which is a bummer; your sick time can only be used for three consecutive sick days or more. It encourages people to come to work sick rather than burn through their PTO, and then we all get sick. The health insurance options are great and there are a range of plans at all prices, which is nice. If you choose UC Irvine for primary care, you will be able to see some of the best doctors in the country and the world. There are a lot of holidays off, plus one floating holiday.
The new plan is all self funded
Government employee, so you get state benefits.
