    Blue cross/Blue shield...major holidays, 401k, etc.- excellent benefits no matter how you look at it, in comparison to many other companies. I had no complaints.

    It's not remotely competitive with the tech companies in the area - even though many people have Master's degrees or PhD degrees.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Registered Nurse in West Roxbury, Massachusetts

    5 weeks paid vacation, 2.5 weeks sick time, you can carry over unlimited sick time and a ton of vacation time year to year. 11 federal holidays - so there is a ton of paid time off which is amazing. PENSION plus Thrift Saving plan- government match retirement means I will be able to retire young and enjoy my life! Flexible work life balance with time off and compressed tours ( I work 4-10 hour shifts but there is a variety of options). These are my best perks but there is a ton of other great benefits working for the VA- government employee discounts everywhere, tax free shopping at work, flex spending plans for health, great healthcare options, scholarships and continuing education funds. Basically you can not beat federal benefits.
