    Health insurance was pretty great, especially for me, as I worked out of state. Additionally, they would match what you contributed to your retirement account, up to 5%.

    It may be somewhat pricey, but the benefits are worth it. They are amazing and I'm a person with a number of disabilities. My deductible and copay are fairly low considering how much I make use of the insurance.

    Great benefits, crappy parking, PERS (retirement), and a bus pass that wasn't entirely free but pretty close.

    Flexibility, vacation days, holidays, medical benefits, and retirement contribution. These are the best parts of the benefits package at the University of Washington.

    Union dues suck and take a significant portion of each paycheck-- more than I pay for health insurance.

    The UWRP is great, my retirement portfolio is doing very well and the time off is untouched by the private sector

    Health insurance is excellent for a graduate student program, especially if you have dependents, although the best benefits are limited to on-campus hall health which can be inconvenient. Dental plan could possibly be improved.

    401K match is extremely generous
