    Best: retirement matched at 7.5% of salary and 10% at age 50+; worst: few merit raises, no guaranteed cost-of-living raise as funding depends on state budgets.

    The best part was that PTO is accrued at a fair rate and can be accumulated over the years without a cap. I took a three-week long vacation thanks to their PTO policy.

    The benefits package was very comprehensive and the best thing was the match of the 401K.

    The University of Washington (UW) offers a full range of benefits, including a beautiful campus and access to many college-level educational opportunities. I've lived in Seattle for 40 years and I've worked at the UW for 17 years; this is one of the best employers in town.

    The Regence Uniform Health insurance option is amazing and has been indispensable for recovering from a stroke several years ago.

    Time off is pretty good, co-pay is great for prescriptions. Office visits are free, but the choice of doctors is a bit limited. Especially for dental.

    Health insurance is quite good, and the union benefits are strong
