    One of the few remaining true pension plans, though per-employee contribution seems to be going up each year.

    As an intern you don't really get much benefits besides experience so you should not expect too much in terms of packages

    Health Insurance is top notch. If you have another offer. Please consider this as an option. You have UC Care, an Anthem PPO to an of the UC's research top research hospitals. You also have the option Kaiser and Healthnet PPOs. The only thing that is not as competitive is the Pension plan. UC has pushed Deferred Compensation (with matching) to offset the cost of the older pension plans. The option for pension is still there but you must work at least five years to be vested. If you don't plan on staying for five years in the UC system, then opt for DC.

    Good compensation, specially if you have family living with you. You paid very low amount to cover your spouse and kids.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Postdoctoral Research Associate in Riverside, California

    Health insurance is good and monthly premium is paid almost entirely by UC. Since postdocs are social security exempt, the university has a mandatory 8% withholding into a retirement savings account with no match. Investment options are limited.

    The worst thing about the benefits is the ever-rising cost of the pension. They now have multiple pension tiers. New employees are in the lowest tier and will never get the pension that people in the second or third tier get (but still have to pay the same amount).
