The best thing is provided by tuition remission. The worst thing is there is always some misunderstood in the payroll.
dental, health care, 401K, and sick leave
Very good benefits as a Research Assistant!
Good salaries compare to low expenditures in Madison.
For me it looks everything fine for me. University follows the NIH pay scale to Research Associate with annual increase of 4% in salary.
It was a really good deal. Free housing for 2 semesters (around $9000 value), around $170-190 biweekly, access to printing and all the supplies in the office, reduced dining costs, and a great community.
-Excellent healthcare coverage including medical, dental, and pet insurance, tuition remission, and retirement plan
Plenty of leave to use (sick, vacation, paid holidays) and fun to be on-campus during the school year.
Great retirement benefits, descent health benefits (80/20) but many providers.
UW-Madison provides good benefits. For example, it comes with tuition remission for those who have more than 33.3% appointment. They also provide very good health insurance. Probably the best in the United States.
