Benefits and Perks
Paid vacation days are a given for more than half of survey participants, but only one in three grads are rewarded with paid sick leave. It is no small feat that a strong majority of alums are given health coverage, and a fair number of survey participants accept dental insurance. In an effort to save up for the years ahead, a fair number of grads contribute to a 401(k). Other benefits awarded to Butler University alumni include life insurance, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and free drinks.
