    The health and retirement benefits are great, retirement in particular. They double the 5% minimum that you contribute each month.

    Benefits is pretty good. Good insurance, vacation and sick time. 401K is the best. I would say benefit wise, no other employer can beat this.

    Great health insurance, tuition waiver. BUT tons of rules/limitations of the tuition waiver. Be strategic and careful!

    A Postdoctoral Fellow is eligible for many benefits – including both individual and family health, vision and dental insurance – but is not eligible for CU ORP 401(a) retirement plans or employee leave plans, the latter of which are often designated by the granting agency.

    They do not offer retirement benefits for postdocs, where other universities do, but otherwise, their benefits are very competitive.
