“Consistent support is offered and extensive training is provided. ”
“The health insurance at WGU is pretty good. Coverage and price is not the best I've had, but it is pretty good.”
“Time off is generous and grows the more years you are at WGU”
no vacation, must work 7 days per week with 50 hour minimum commitment, but they hire black people so that's a big plus. I got "pen is" slapped by my superior for being 8 minutes late to work and HR laughed me out of their office. Big daddy wasn't happy about that, I will file a complaint with the government. "Pen is" slapping is a crime.
Western Governors University has excellent health and other benefits - Cigna is the health provider and there is a low and high deductible plan. Dental and vision benefits are also good. There is a 3% employee match on 401K and employees get 75% tuition reduction for themselves and 50% reduction for their families
Great health benefits. 403b investment plan that WGU contributes a base percentage and then matches employees contribution. Part of Perks Spot which gives a lot of great discounts to a lot of companies.
Only have the option for Cigna, and they don't cover a few things that are vital. Wish we had other options like Blue Cross.
Overall a good package that seems to be adding things that make it better.
No paid maternity leave available
Good education discount for employees and family.
Overall good benefits. Less PTO than at most other companies in the valley, but they do have separate sick leave, which I appreciate. Health insurance through Cigna, with HDHP and traditional options. Good retirement plan with 3% matching and another 3% automatically contributed, though employer contributions don't vest for 4 years.
Great benefits available to full time employees
PTO, sick time, paid vacation, 401(k), tuition discount for employees and their family
