  • Health Insurance(30 comments)

    “The same VA state insurance. Good coverage, but we don't have many good doctors in the region, which cannot be blamed on the insurance.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(7 comments)

    “The year-end mandatory close days are taken from our annual leave balance, which is not fair. George Mason gives out those days for free, why...”

  • Sick Days(4 comments)

    “Too many sick days, giving lazy people the opportunities to cheat and abuse the system.”

    Incredible healthcare coverage for decent rates. Easy online health survey grants you a decent monthly discount. Travel and vacation perks website really cuts prices down. Many holidays every year, almost two weeks paid in winter. Annual leave begins immediately, with two weeks yearly sick time.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Blacksburg, Virginia

    One unusual perk if you are faculty at Virginia Tech is that you can contribute to both a 403 (b), which is the educational version of a 401(k) and a 457, which is the state version of the 401(k). Thereby, you can double up on your retirement tax shelters.

    A Research/Teaching assistantship job covers 90% payment of student's health insurance

    Benefits in higher education are pretty great, Tech is no exception.

  • Jul 23, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Blacksburg, Virginia

    Very generous leave package for staff and faculty. Extensive holidays and year end school closing. Holidays are not as plentiful for faculty but you still have a great deal of time off.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Graduate Research Assistant in Blacksburg, Virginia

    As a GRA, it really depends on your adviser and what they need/expect from you. I put a lot of pressure on myself to meet goals and deadlines, which meant sacrificing going home on holidays like regular students.
