    After three years, get four weeks off/yer plus holidays. 13 days of sick leave/year. No separate maternity/paternity leave. TSP (like 401K) with 5% matching, flexible spending accounts, federal government health insurance plans and optional dental and optical insurance.

    USAID bases your salary offer on your most recent salary. This can be good or bad based on what your last salary was. It also creates huge imbalances in the salaries paid to people who do the same job. Days off and health coverage are consistent with US government, the longer you stay, the better your leave becomes. There is no maternity or paternity leave but you do earn sick leave that doesn't expire.

    Flexible working hours and professional people around you. Working on a project that lasts only 4 years is something that worries you about your future job

    Good health insurance selection and 5% matching on 401K (called TSP) for direct hires.

    The best perk of working for USAID is knowing you are contributing to a better world. Beyond that, as a US Government agency, the benefits of being a personal services contractor for USAID include 401k (but no employer contribution), health insurance, a good annual leave and sick leave policy.
