There is nothing bad about the benefits package. Retirement benefits are excellent, including medical and dental. That is all I wish to say, I hope I reached 20 words.
A multitude of diverse options
UC system's benefits overall are fine and uniform across all the universities, so it's just a matter of whether or not you'll enjoy your time at the department you applied to. A lot of HR's policy is "at supervisor's discretion," so if you have a bad boss, then you may not have access to some perks, such as working from home.
Paid sick leave only for student assistants
That there are no benefits
Fantastic retirement benefits and great health plans too.
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.
