Most Commented

  • Health Insurance(117 comments)

    The insurance covered the basics, but limited in terms of in network providers

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(37 comments)

    Tough to do pay time off, because of the pressure to continue research/publish

  • Retirement Plan(28 comments)

    The pension is one of the most significant benefits of working at UC Berkeley. You also have the opportunity to contribute to retirement plans independently of the pension. It takes a little while to get vested.

Very good benefits. Highly recommend that you you don’t go with the cheap Kaiser Health but instead PPO. Definitely worth it. Also good pension plan.
