“PTO accrues fairly slowly if you are a newcomer, but you are able to accrue more the longer you work at the City.”
Overall it is a great benefit, however it can be quite pricey for some lower earning employees to work into a barely living wage.
Very little discounts and should have been options on the benefits
CVB provided a comprehensive benefits package (health, dental, retirement). They used to offer separate Vacation and Sick leave... it's now just all in one PTO bucket. They didn't really provide any other extra "perks" (the previous City Manager didn't believe employees should get discounts with the City working for the City), but that may have changed with the current City Manager. Also, be prepared to give 5% of your paycheck to VRS retirement (mandatory for all CVB employees).
Has very good dental, medical, retirement accounts for all employees
The insurance coverage is pretty great and affordable
Health, Dental, Flexible Spending Accounts, Health Savings Account, Legal Plans, Long Term Care, Long Term Disability, Optional Life Insurance, Deferred Compensation, Tax Sheltered Accounts plus birthday leave and 11.5 paid holidays per year.
Offers everything you can think of benefits wise. But health insurance is consistently getting more expensive.
Vacation time is PTO now. It's not all that great, but comparable to most companies. The pay is not great and lower than you'll find generally in the private sector. However, you'll only have 40 hour weeks until you become very senior generally so that is nice. Maternity leave is through PTO, sick leave (if eligible for it under old system), or leave without pay. The sick leave bank is not allowed to be used by PTO employees. Only employees under the old system. To cut costs they have kicked spouses who are eligible through their employers off the City's healthcare. The retirement is now through VRS. It is a 401K-like employee contribution system with some employer matching.
The medical insurance is good & the retirement plan.
Good health insurance, but erosion of benefits is occurring, while upper management gives themselves much higher salaries each year.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
