    The best is the retirement package and the worst the cost of dental insurance,

    Retirement benefits are amazing! Health insurance - like most places - is marginal, but that is probably more a feature of the health care/insurance nightmare we are in. Despite repeated requests, they don't have an opportunity for on-site child care, which create problems in work/life balance.

    Best: For exempt employees, the retirement contribution of 12% is fantastic. Non-exempt receive 10% (both matches kick in after a one-year qualifying period). This is the best I've seen anywhere. Not best: Health insurance is limited to a single high-deductible plan, but the University funds an FSA for half of the annual deductible.

    Educational benefits. Being able to take classes for free at a rising top-tier liberal arts university is a very good experience.

    I do not receive benefits at the University of Puget Sound - as I am a part-time student employee.

    Best thing: 10% of your salary in retirement benefits - no individual contribution required, plus free tuition for your kids.

    Great health insurance (Puget Sound pays first half of your deductible, and if you don't use that the first year, it's fully funded the second year.) Salaried employees see 12% of their income contribued to a 403b with no matching necessary.
