Great benefits. Health, tuition assistance, dental, retirement plan, vision,
Pension, vacation time, sick time, volunteer time, location and grounds, work environment. Cultural and sports events convenient and some small discounts.
Only full time employees are eligible, which makes it difficult to keep a position there no matter how much you love what you do.
Great benefits (medical insurance only and costs covered by university, reduced costs if care sought on campus via CampusHealth) and increased accessibility to excellent providers on campus. Dental and family coverage is extra and can be quite expensive.
The Graduate RA/TA health insurance plans are comprehensive with a very low deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. The health services at the campus clinic (included in your student fees) are great, with friendly staff and lab testing, x-rays and ultrasounds available on-site. Also, the campus pharmacy has the best prescription prices around.And all students have access to legal services, paid for in your fees, which can be very helpful in landlord disputes, etc. Downside is no dental or vision coverage included, using the clinic in the summer is an extra $150 fee, and the on-campus gyms are very over-crowded, even in 'off hours'.
Vacation time was very good
no dental, monthly children or family fee, limited vision, in network is great, nice to have a maximum amount
NC State health insurance plan is great but I'm not sure how long it will be around as is.
The pay, since it is a State University is much lower that the private universities, but the benefits package (other than pay) were just as good, if not better than the private universities. When I was laid off, I was given a severance package and one year of health insurance (which is much better than any other job I have been laid off from)!!!!
The worst thing was that there is no paid maternity/paternity/parental leave for staff (there is something for faculty). They just adhere to FMLA for staff. You can take up to 12 weeks off in any year, all of which is unpaid unless you have vacation time and/or sick time to add to that. You have to horde your vacation and sick time, but you can't use sick time for more than a certain percentage of the total time off you're taking.
