Best: Matching 401K, incomparable health insurance, unlimited accumulation of vacation days. Worst: No maternity or paternity paid time off. None whatsoever.
Outstanding benefit package offered to full time staff
Working for the federal government provides great benefits
Standard federal benefit s. Great health insurance options and retirement package. No assistance with student loans (unless you're an AUSA), and no real work/life benefits.
Great leave and insurance benefits. The leave benefits get better the longer you stay. You can cash out unused vacation time when you leave.
The best thing was the amount of options. There were many benefits providers to choose from. The worst was the out of pocket costs, while reasonable, getting full medical, dental and vision was a lot of money out of pocket.
Good health plans, job stability , office has important mission or goals which you will be contributing to. Very slow advancement in career or pay which may be a minus for some.
The best thing about the U.S Department of Justice's benefit package is 1) The Thrift Savings Plan (401K) where you can receive a guaranteed 1% and up to a 4% match; 2) The pension under FERS is not as generous as CRS, but a set income based on 1% of the highest three years your income times the number of years you work for the government (1.1% if you work 20 years) for non-law enforcement is a good benefit; and 3) Very good health and long term care insurance options.
Security of the position and the flexibility of the benefits is the best for family concerns. The downside is the push by congress to constantly reduce them for new employees.
there is no worse thing, the benefits are great. the only exception is I didn't find it family friendly.
