    StarStarStarStarStar Former Teaching Assistant in Madison, Wisconsin

    Health insurance for teaching assistants is excellent and affordable. Don't expect to start a retirement fund, as the pay is veryy low.

    UW - Madison has a competitive vacation time and sick leave accruall

    Amazing time off. No way you can use them all up in a year.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Instructor in Madison, Wisconsin

    Health insurance benefits are excellent, although the State legislature has reduced the State's financial contribution to some extent. Legislative changes have also removed domestic partner benefit coverage from the UW System and other State employers as of 1/1/2018, a change which (in my opinion) will reduce the quality of the UW System over all.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Madison, Wisconsin

    There is nothing much greater about the benefits package. Just the basic compensation for a student part-time job ($10 per hour, 12 hours per week).

  • Oct 11, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current RN in Madison, Wisconsin

    Tuition reimbursement is inadequate for a teaching hospital

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Madison, Wisconsin

    It has additional eye/dental benefits besides the general benefits, which is about $20/per month. It will cover more situaions.

  • Sep 25, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Graduate Research Assistant in Madison, Wisconsin

    The insurance is good. It covers most of the necessary parts. Do not have others. The salary is not high, either.

  • Sep 29, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Graduate Research Assistant in Madison, Wisconsin

    Graduate assistants (and research interns) get good health insurance at low rate ($45.50/month) for 2017. Includes basic dental, for more extensive dental/vision have to purchase separate plan (not sure the rate, but fairly cheap).
