    Strong health benefits. Competitive vacation and sick time. For employees over 50 years, UW matches 100% of your 401k contribution up to 10% of your pay. That's pretty generous.

    For graduate students, the health insurance is wonderful. There is also a fully subsidized transit pass for $84/quarter but the price does keep increasing with union negotiations.

    Good dental insurance and 401k, decent amount of vacation days, and a host of UW medical offices near campus. UW doesn't cover transportation costs, fertility assistance, or parental leave; maternity/paternity leave requires you to use your sick days and vacation days.
