Great PTO and 401k matching
Yale Health care is outstanding, until your time is up and they cut you off as soon as you finish your teaching requirements. This left me with no health coverage or needed prescriptions between graduation and new employment.
Just like you would expect it. Give it a try and see for yourself, and overall I would be likely to say that was an experience that have been enriching on several levels.
As a grad student in my dept (psychology), health insurance through the Yale Health center was included in the tuition/stipend package. The health insurance is pretty comprehensive (e.g., no copays for visiting doctors, most prescriptions covered), but does not cover dental/vision. The quality of the care at Yale Health was great -easy to get appointments , good physical location, and you don't have to worry about "picking" a good doctor (cons- you don't get much choice!). I have also heard that it doesn't offer much coverage for maternity/fertility issues, but this was not relevant for me.
Lower pay, but great health insurance, 401k match, pension and vacation.
Best health insurance, benefit, diversity
students can choose yale health. the package costs about 1000+ per semester.
One of the best benefit packages in the country...
generous 403 match, reasonable vacation time, comprehensive medical coverage with rates depending on your salary
The health insurance is really good; I've gone to physical therapy for many years and haven't had to pay anything for the service. There are no University-wide standards for paid-time off (it is left to the discretion of each person's individual boss); my boss 'strong requests' we work >60 hours/week and at least 6 days/week.
