2 weeks sick time off (paid)
Health insurance is great.
C.O.L.A., health insurance package for family. Over 34 paid holidays per year.
Unionized graduate students, wellness benefits, free vision and dental
401K is very low percentage
Good benefits overall, but the retirement plan is a scam. Health insurance, flexible hours, and professional development are great, but relatively easy for the university to offer a young and generally healthy population. As a clear professional (postdoctoral researcher), I'm frustrated that the retirement plan consists of an obligatory pretax contribution to a savings account. There is no employer match, and the account generates no revenue, and university (state) employees contribute nothing to social security. This retirement savings account money can either be transferred to an IRA or paid to the employee (and taxed as income) at the end of employment. Until then the money just sits.
Great work culture. Advisors/Profs have great connections with Data scientists at prestigious schools like MIT, UC Berkeley and research DOE, NSF funded labs and organizations.
Great health insurance, 401 K, PTO
I worked 3 days from home and 2 in the office, but this new policy was implemented years after I began my employment.
I was not paid a huge amount. I was not full time so I did not earn any other benefits from UMass.
