One of the best benefits packages in the US. Especially the health-care package.
Zero benefits for part timers
I worked as a graduate research assistant for four years. My second year, our health insurance was canceled. It’s hard enough being in grad school without having to worry about if you can afford to go to the doctor.
As an adjunct, you don't get any benefits package that offers anything affordable.
Health insurance fully covered by employer, low deductible good coverage. Matching contributions for retirement, wellness program.
Full benefits package that entirely covers the cost of medical, dental, vision for a single person (no dependents). It is unmatched by any other employer in Missoula. They also allow 3 weeks worth of paid vacation per year and generous sick time. They are very focused on work-life balance.
great education benefits and location. Big university with multiple academia choices to pursue
Overall benefits package is strong but expensive
The health insurance was fine and so was the vacation allocation. When I left I was not allowed to cash in all of my vacation time.
The benefits at UM are the main reason people will work, and continue to work, at the organization. With the starting pay incredibly low for most positions, the benefits package is a buffer between a lasting organization and a future failure.
