Best benefits in the area. Generous and defined PTO, 10% flat contribution to retirement (no match required) and relatively affordable health care plans that scale in cost with salary.
They give 10% to all full-time employees in retirement money as long as you make under 70k. That's a great package. Great health benefits, totally affordable depending on your salary tier. I wish they had better maternity leave policy. They don't pay for time off if you have a baby. That makes it hard on people who want to have a family in the work force, especially women.
Standard benefits. Health clinic for acute care needs. Week off between Christmas and New Year. These are not additional days off. They are holidays such as Veterans Day that the organization defers and delivers during the winter holiday instead. Health insurance premiums adjust with salary with higher wage earners paying more to ensure affordability for workers earning less. Access to gym with paid membership. Free tuition for 1 class per semester after 1 year for full time employees. Discounted tuition for dependents of employees.
The University's retirement contribution is excellent.

Most benefits are paid in part by the employee.
10 percent of salary is automatically put into 401K.
The flat 10% retirement contribution is the best, underrated benefit (no match required). Also, staff should be sure to take advantage of the free tuition they're afforded every semester.
Good benefits all around would recomendad
lot's of time off and you don't have to really teach anything, just keep the students busy.
Best thing is their contributiong to retirement plus the time off.
