    It depends on whether or not you are FT or PT or INT

  • Pension Plan(4 comments)

    The pension is a hybrid pension and 401K. There is a mandatory 1% pension per year and then a variable 401K plan which is dependent on the market.

  • Health Insurance(3 comments)

    The health insurance is affordable and it will cover visits to nearby doctors. It may be complicated however for specialists because the area is remote.

Cheap health insurance, prescriptions, and co-pays. Governmental health isurance is usually always great. I can not think of any downsides.
