    pension plan. Worst thing is its getting reduced for newer employees.

    Kaiser health plan through UCB offers excellent, comprehensive coverage for individuals. Haven’t tried the flexible spending account option (HSA) but it looks like a strong benefit for those who know how to use it correctly.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Student Services Advisor in Berkeley, California

    I keep discovering new benefits. Like my $20/week amazing therapist. My legal insurance that is paying for an adoption issue I am having. Whole family covered for about $250/mos for health insurance. Dental and vision free.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Gsi in UC Berkeley, California

    No 401k, tang center healthcare is good for simple issues, SHIP insurance worse if something awful happens

    Free food for work-study employees - not too sure about full-time employee packages.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Postdoctoral Scholar in Berkeley, California

    My employer covers my wife's, daughter's, and my medical insurance. The medical insurance is perfect! The copay is only $10.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Oakland, California

    The health insurance is the best benefit. It only costs around $150/month to insure my family. I rarely pay anything out of pocket.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Berkeley, California

    Retirement plan, great paid time off (vacation and many holidays, a variety of affordable health care options, plus 403b and 457 plans (could do both).

  • Nov 15, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Berkeley, California

    Great pension plan. Solid benefits with Kaiser. And an additional 403b plan as well. Wish the tuition benefits included more of the masters programs, but still good overall.
