    WGU offers nice benefits including health and dental insurance, PTO as time off, Sick time that accrues until you hit a max, retirement, and a yearly bonus that all employees qualify for if metrics are met.

    Best thing about the benefits was the 50% off for education!

    The full-time benefits seem on par with my main job's health insurance. I would recommend their coverage and that WGU's contribution to the health insurance premiums is excellent. As a part-time employee, I enjoy the benefit for 3% base into the 401(k) and an additional 3% matching contribution from WGU! My favorite benefit is the generous employee discount, which is available to employees after they work six months. As a WGU alumnus and current evaluator, I understand the quality of the degree! I really love WGU!

    Benefits packages are better-than-average and offer employees some choices. Retirement savings plan is excellent.

    Best thing about benefits? Not much. Its pretty slim. Worse thing, its pretty behind the times on other employers I have had. IE Paternity/Maternity leave is part of the FMLA, not paid. That's kind of behind the times and should be updated.

    Health benefits are good. Time off is terrible.

    Plan was changed leaving WGU employees in the dark. WGU is legally compliant, but a very noninclusive policy for trans people.
