Benefits and Perks
The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only two-fifths of workers report compensation for sick days and vacation time. Workers wishing to put aside retirement money are in luck; University of Chicago sponsors various plans such as a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan. Health insurance comes as part of the deal for the vast majority of employees, and a large number of survey participants report receiving dental coverage as well. Some other advantages of working at University of Chicago are life insurance, tuition reimbursement, and flexible hours.
