The best thing about the time. You have four weeks of paid vacation. I worked from 9 to 4 each day. It was easy to take time off. I really enjoyed working in my department. Another positive thing, there is no strict deadline for the projects. I can submit anytime I want
Descent. Benefits. Great health. Good pay
Low per month contribution to health insurance that has a low deductible.
No clear line of vocation plan at all. There is no family leave policy either. You will have to work with the department and HR to figure out a paid leave. The healthcare package was OK though.
The best thing is the employees you work with. They are really cool and like to hang out outside of work.
Health insurance has the best coverage for you and your family but no 401k benefit for research associate.
401k 5% matching. Health Insurance offered
Health insurance, dental and vision is fantastic. Vacation and sick leave is wonderful. Retirement is extremely advantageous. Professional development is offered every minute of every day of every week. The opportunities are boundless. These all make up for the less-than-desirable salaries offered across the board.

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