The benefits are great. There’s plenty of PTO, about 10 hours per month +additional 16 per year. There’s great tuition reduction. They also put 14% of your salary into reteriment without you putting in a penny. Overall great benefits.
not applicaple for graduate researchers
As a post doc, unfortunately there are very limited retirement benefits. The health insurance and dental insurance are fantastic, though.
The University of Utah contributes to a 401a plan (a bit different than 401k) which you cannot contribute to directly, regardless of whether or not you contribute to other retirement plans, like 403b or 457b plans. So, money is not taken from your paycheck for this 401a account, so it is almost like a bonus that goes directly to a retirement account.
The free UTA bus/trax pass with your ID is ideal.
Generous retirement benefit of 14.2% on the taxpayer dime. Health insurance policy that costs more than $2,000 each month on the taxpayer dime.
Benefits are extensive and the best part about working for the UofU
Incredible retirement benefits, the University has very low insurance premiums and great coverage!
It’s a Mediocre place to work
It is not bad for a graduate student stipend as the cost of living is low here
