Current Associate Professor in Danbury, Connecticut

Health, dental, and vision insurance have multiple tiers and options for participation and are subsidized VERY well by the school/state! Life insurance is available, as are paid health checking accounts, disability insurance, illness pay, etc. There is extra income available (roughly $10-20k) to professors taking on additional work/classes. Supplemental funding via internal grants is very generous and easily available.

State Benefits were great! Vacation time was excellent, and what you didn't use, you got paid out when you leave!

Current Graduate Assistant in Danbury, Connecticut

As a graduate assistant, you receive a refund of a large percentage of the state fees included in tuition for Graduate study. This, in addition to the max $4800 per semester stipend (20 hours per week), offsets the cost of education.
