Good health insurance and 401k. As is customary with most universities, the benefits are great
The best thing about the benefits package at the University of Arizona is the Qualified Tuition Reduction you, your spouse or dependents can receive on tuition. Also, the Arizona Retirement is great and the University will match what you put in once vested (5 years).
Not many people know about this, but the UA Childcare Choice Program reimbursed us $4,000 each year on qualified childcare expenses when both parent are employed (at least one at UA). There is limited funds available to first-come, first-serve, but my application each year has never been rejected.
UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members
Excellent health and dental insurance. Tuition assistance for employees and their domestic partners. Generous vacation and sick leave.
Do not like the state-required retirement fund, that you must participate in. They make you put in 11.2% or something like that. They say they will match 100% of this if you stay here until retirement. Well what if I will not be here until retirement? Then you get no match, and they just held your money for that long. Not a fan. No way around it. And to me, the fact that it is so high tells me that it isn't managed well (they need gobs of money from current workers to pay for their current reitrees. This will only get worse. Where will it stop, 13%, 15%?). Everything else with benefits package is fine, normal. Every company I have been at pretty much gives you the same thing in my opinion.
I would say very good food in Tucson, a kind of laid back working style compared with NYC.
great heath benefits and tuition break
Health insurance, vision insurance, dental insurance, long term disability, short term disability, retirement program, life insurance, sick time, annual leave.
The best benefit from working at the University would have to be inexpensive cost of enrolling in different courses and certificate program the school offers.
