    I really enjoyed working here. Great health insurance coverage. No vision coverage, so you are on your own if you need vision correction.

    The health benefits are pretty good. Vision is not covered however. That would be my only complaint

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Graduate Research Assistant in Minneapolis, Minnesota

    Health insurance (and dental) for graduate assistants, but dependents are not covered. Paternity/maternity leave. However, depends on how many hours worked (20 for full health insurance, 10 for partial).

    They were extremely easy about taking time off because I was a student. If I ever felt over worked they were more than willing to let me take a couple days off to study and focus on school

    health insurance, 401K, paid leave, paternity leave, maternity leave, bereavement leave, dental insurance

    The best thing about the benefits package is the health insurance; although it used to be great, but copayments and deductibles have increased dramatically over the last 5 years. The retirement plan is great too, but that has also degraded for new hires.
