    PTO accrual rate increases by years of employment, maxing out at 2 days/month once you've been there for 5 years. I also have way more sick days than I need - earning 1 day per month. These balances are separate from each other and both roll over each month. You stop accruing if your balance reaches 24.

    Best thing are the tuition benefits. I was able to pay about half of the ticket price of my Masters degree.

    ok health plans, Upto 5% matching 401, reasonable PTOs and sick leaves. Base salaries could improve.

    Personal, vacation time is great. Health Benefits get more expensive every year but are manageable IF you stay in Penn system (which is easy to do in city OR suburbs). One surprise: I thought my kids got free tuition. That's ONLY if they go to - & get INTO - Penn. Then they pay 70%. If they DON'T go to Penn, they pay 40% of Penn's tuition ($8,000 or so) to other school's tuition ONLY. So if yr kid goes to a school with $50,000 tuition - which can happen easily these days - that $8,000 disappears quickly. But if yr kid goes to say, Temple & the tuition is $7,000, yr kid gets just $7,000 because the $8,000 is ONLY applicable to tuition. Not Room & Board, not Fees. Appreciated the money, Yes has been increasingly limited over years.
