We have short and long term disability at no cost, 100% tuition reimbursement (up to 7,200 for graduate, 4320 undergrad), we can take all of our CEU's for free, and a bunch of other benefits that make the no holiday pay a bit easier to understand. I would like to see time and a half for holidays though.
