paid medical insurance
paid dental insurance
paid eye insurance
vacation (determined on longevity)
no sick leave, but an extra week of "free days" to be used if sick or with family commitment
I have no idea about bereavement leave, thank goodness
paid life insurance
no pension, but the company matches his contributions to 401k
Important to us, adoption reimbursement!!!
tuition reimbursement (also important to us, b/c dh is using it to get his master's degree)
car allowance

I'll have to check for details but

Health insurance - yes, a pretty good package
Dental - yes, very good
Vision - yes, I haven't used it
Life insurance - very generous policy
Accidental Death and Dismemberment - yes
Disability - yes
Vacation - depends on salary grade (I'm currently at 3 weeks a year)
Holidays - the usual ones
Sick leave - yes, but I don't know what the accrual rate is
Bereavement leave - yes, again don't know off the top how much
Also a very generous contribution to a 401(k)
Annual performance bonus

Here's the best part, though. We work what is called a 9/80 schedule. That means 80 hours of work over 9 business days (rather than 10). So most days are at least 9 hours of work. But we then get every other Friday off!

Of course, a lot of this is changing with the overseas assignment. No more 9/80. :( BUT we get 3 1-week interim leaves per year (that do not count as vacation) where the company will fly us from Tripoli to London or the cost equivalent. And once a year, they will fly us home to the States.

I'm an at home mom, but hubby has a civil service job with the federal government. His are..

They pay half his medical, we pay the other half (about $400/mo) [(bad)dental and vision are included]. The medical/pharmacy plan is awesome.
They match his TSP 100% up to a certain amount. (TSP is thrift savings plan or gvt's retirement/version of 401k)
They match his charitible donations 100% up to a certain amount.
He gets raises every 6 months until he maxes out on his payscale.
He gets 3 hours every week of annual leave and 2 hours a week of sick leave. Right now, he has 143 hours of annual and 354.5 of sick with 96 hours of military leave also (which will be gone in July when he has summer camp). He hardly ever takes leave, so he usually builds up use or lose leave. With this, he can opt to take it at the end of the year or they will reimburse him for that amount of leave before the year's end. What isn't use or lose leave transfers over to the new year.
They are supposed to get all federal holidays, but with his job, he usually works most of them (gets double pay for that).
He works swing shifts, and he gets differential pay for working evening or midnight shifts.
They provide him with life insurance (the family too) and accidental injury insurance.
He usually gets a bonus every year with his performance report also. He just got one actually - much needed to pay for our son's upcoming surgery and ended up being just enough. :)
Oh, he also gets to use facilities on the base such as lower cost daycare, free gym, etc... but that's not really a perk since we get it anyway with him being in the air guard.

Dental: Delta
Vision plan
Legal assistance plan
Modest pension program, which will probably dry up long before I retire

vacation: depends on seniority
sick leave: 8 hrs/month
life insurance: 2x/salary, with option to buy more
long-term care and disability insurance
subsidized bus passes

There are lots of little intangibles, too, like gyms, emergency psychotherapy, classes, etc.

I work part time. The only benefit that I have is that my company puts a 7% profitsharing contribution into my 401(k). It is also nice that I can contribute to my 401(k) considering that I work part time. My part time consists of 12 weeks @50-60+ hours per week, about 35 weeks @20+ hours per week, and about 5 weeks with no work and no pay either. No medical. No dental. No vision. No overtime either!

SU gets
Paid medical, and we only pay about $100 for the family coverage
Paid dental. I can't remember what we pay for the family coverage.
No vision.
life & disability - we pay something to supplement their coverage
5 weeks PTO (he's been working a long time to get to that point)
I think that he gets 9 - 10 paid holidays
8% match on the 401(k)
option to buy discounted stock

I think that his benefits are fine, but he sure works a lot (for free). He's exempt, so his 50 - 60 hour weeks are paid the same as if he worked 40 hours per week (that has NEVER happened), but the work doesn't do itself, so he has to work overtime. He gets to work by 7:30 every day, takes about 45 min. for lunch (he comes home to let the doggies out) and gets home around 7:15-7:30 every day. His commute takes 10 minutes, so he works an 11 hour day Monday through Friday. I can't wait until he can retire and enjoy life.

I have zippo... zilch... nada.

Ah, the joys of being considered an independent contractor and self-employed. ;)

Though, technically, I suppose I have free medical (thanks to our healthcare system) and free dental (if I stay "in-house").

I can take as much vacation time as I want, but it's unpaid, and my life, disability, critical illness insurance policies are all out-of-pocket.

SU Has: (USAF)
free medical/vision when we retire next year we have to pay. I think it's $700 yr for whole family coverage. He'll still be free.
dental insurance $25 month for family
vacation 2.5 days every month
sick leave none. if he's sick he has to get a note from the dr to miss work.
roaming day off...dont have a clue what that is
bereavement leave (I think 3 days) for family, including family-in-law you have to use your vacation for this.
life insurance $16 mo for $300,000 I think. Again after retirement not sure what will happen.
pension 50% of base pay after 20 years

The sqadron he's in now actually gets holidays off. This is the first one in 19 years though.
I think that's it.

Wow, I didn't realize the differences in company benefits.

There are lots of little intangibles, too, like gyms, emergency psychotherapy, classes, etc.
I forgot that we do have psychotherapy help if any employee feels the need. We had this benefit a long time ago, and the company offering assitance advised many staff to quit, which they did. And the firm discontinued the perk. They just recently reinstated it.

Gyms are great... wish we had that.

I have a feeling that you overlooked the State mandated TDI as well as some form of long term disability coverage. I'm sure that you would also have some type of drug (medicines) coverage.

We offered those and more to our employees in Hawaii 30+ years ago. In addition, the chief financial officer got to sleep with me regularly. (wife Carol) ;)
