    You have several choices here and the reps are decent.

I used 401k or something similar

Good health insurance with low deductibles and NO premium for individual coverage; lots of in-network doctors to choose from in the area. Dependent and spouse scholarship is FULL tuition for any immediate family member of an employee! This is rare and awesome. However, a huge strike against them is that there is no paid family leave. Department chairs may or may not let you take the extra time on your tenure clock for childbearing that you're supposed to get (milage varies on this). Benefits packages are generally good overall, including teacher retirement system in Texas (if you want to stay here for life), but HR is a mess and I dock stars due to the fact that they might not be implemented properly due to high turnover and other problems in that department.

Your medical insurance is paid by the employer which is a huge benefit. The dental and vision is not very expensive to add to your plan.

Health, life and dental. 401k with good employer contribution.

This was not a benefited position. I accepted a part time position.

Paid health insurance premium for staff (just employee, not family), reasonable time off accrual.

Current Associate Professor in Tyler, Texas

Annual pay raises do not cover increases in cost of benefits every year, so it is possible to make less even after getting a raise. Raises (if they happen) are usually between 0.5 and 2%. You have 3-4 dental insurance options, which is nice, but only one medical choice, which really sucks.

There isn't a lot of benefits. The only benefits that you get are discounts for outdoor adventure trips, and 25 cent raise after every semester.
