Full time gets either pension or defined contribution plan. Defined contribution is great, 7.25% and it is not a match, you get it regardless of what you contribute. 14 holidays, 3 personal days, 22 days annual leave, 15 days sick leave, and administrative leave on days when the school closes suddenly, like snow days. health coverage is very good and reasonable cost. you get full health coverage if you work at least half-time. parental leave is okay, they guarantee 8 weeks (soon to be 12, i think, given new MD state employee law) paid, but that means you pay yourself with any leave you've accrued, and then they'll kick in the rest. also get tuition remission for yourself for most things, and for your spouse and dependents for their first degree.
Really good leave package
The best thing working in UMD are I can work at a quiet and comfortable place for example at classroom, and get advice easily from supervisors because they have office hours
Health insurance package is very good, no matching of 401k deposits. The vacation days given are fairly standard.
Very good benefit package with long vacation

Nice work environment; students are nice.
The insurance premium is higher than other local hospitals
