The best part of the benefits package is the Vacation Purchase Plan which allows employees to 'purchase' extra vacation each year.
Excellent benefits for employees
The University of Manitoba provided benefits that exceeded the employment act.
Best part is maternity and parental leave top-ups. You need to guarantee to come back. If you're not sure you should keep the money separate in case you need to return it.
I've been told that the drug plan is not great in comparison to other companies. Permanent full-time employees get first day benefits. There is a pension you contribute to and umanitoba matches up to a certain amount.
I have been working here for 2 years. Good benefits overall.
I am a part time student for Teaching Assistant, there is no benefits package for me
decent dental insurance. Students get it too
Healthcare Spending Account was the most useful. Worst thing was not knowing how to maximize using benefits when first started working here.
Friendly colleagues, and positive working and research environment. Great opportunity to learn cutting edge technologies from both academic and industrial area.
