Best: Because it is a state institution, almost every nationally recognized holiday is paid time off. Good vacation/sick time package (2 wks accrued PTO, 2 personal days, 180hrs-capped accrued sick time) Worst: Health insurance plans were rather expensive, but good options and coverage.
The manager discretion benefits such as flexible schedules or working from home is implemented inconsistently across the organiozation
Good Health Insurance, and vacation time
Health insurance plan for students (provided) is spectacular. It's full coverage that aligns with the academic school year: Sept. 1 through August 31st. I had some health issues that required 4 surgeries (anesthesia required for all) and have only been financially responsible for co-pays ($10 for surgical specialists) and prescriptions (under $20 for each surgery). Dental insurance is provided and is OK
since I worked a part time position there was no benefits package
Time off, medical benefits are all excellent.
My position currently does not include benefits
You can join and become part of the state pension plan. However, if you leave before there is no pension and your contributions are wasted. There is the 403b plan but that's a lot of pressure when you first start.
Pros: you are provided with options to cover most that you need. Cons: not much to complain about.
For Salaried Employees, Generous Vacation and Sick Time. All school holidays off as well. Great for families and balancing work and life.
