Great retirement benefits, up to 5 percent matching TSP, defined benefit pension, affordable health insurance, life insurance, reduced cost child care, student loan repayment options, student loan forgiveness.
Work from home only so that the district director could do the same
Had time off, but only because I was a part-time intern. No pay was horrible (and no travel stipend)
I don't have any problems with the benefits
Great for taking vacations, federal employment great too
The worst part about being an intern is that i get no benefits whatsoever. But that is how it is for an unpaid intern.
House employees are forced to enter the market place, same as everyone else. There are really no perks for being a Federal employee. The Federal Student Loan Reimbursement program is very generous though an can help a recent college grad put a dent in their student debt while helping to grow your credit score.
The vacation time that we receive per year are great.
Commuter benefits are really useful. Also, there is a student loan repayment program that I sadly don't use.
As an intern you did not receive any benefits. I think this is standard for an internship.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
