For professional staff, full benefits including a choice of health care plans, retirement, options for disability and life insurance for you and your family. 12 vacation days a year. I chose UW because of their benefits. There are also smaller perks like area discounts at stores, gyms, cellphone, etc.
Medical insurance excellent, 401k 100% match, great overall benefits.
401k matches 5% of salary.
A very nice place to work with great benefits. 401k, retirement plan, vacation, paternity leave and peer-to-peer support. Senior colleagues are very helpful in grant application process
Amazing benefits. Especially medical and retirement
I don't like how it's difficult to request days off and to get shifts covered if need be occasionally. But this usually isn't too bad.
meeting new people, how to deal with many types of customers
Lots of medical insurance choices, Free dental insurance and basic disability insurance, 401K with employer match
Benefits were good. We had several choices and good coverage. Employees are part of PEBB, public employees benefits board. UW is one of the biggest employers in the state so has a lot of buying power for group plans. Most people love the benefits.
Graduate students do not have the same benefits package as other research staff and employees.
