    StarStarStarStarStar Current Trip Leader in Riverside, California

    You get to pick and choose your trips. Everything else is very flexible and works around your class schedule. Free rental gear, free climbing gym membership, outdoor prodeals, and great fun!

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Parlier, California

    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Web Applications Programmer 4 in Riverside, California

    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).

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Riverside, California

    As a postdoc, I used to have the best insurance in the market.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Riverside, California

    It's affordable, there is a great retirement package, and you can accrue sick/vacation time pretty quickly, even for a lower-level employee

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Tutor in Riverside, California

    This is a student employment. The employees (students) have insurances. Since I am not working there as a professional, I cannot comment on the benefit package. But usually an UC, they are pretty good to their employees.
