Compensation and Benefits

At OMSI, we are committed to a fair, equitable, and internally consistent approach to compensation for all employees, current and new. Within our financial ability, we strive to provide a competitive overall compensation package, including base salary, paid time off, retirement saving opportunities, and more.

Consistent with this approach, our pay offers are a single figure (we don’t use ranges) and are not negotiable. OMSI’s benefit plans are designed to offer you flexibility and choice. Among the tangible and intangible benefits you will find:

Health and Dental Insurance

Eligible employees can choose from multiple health plans (both HMO and PPO) and two dental health plans with OMSI paying 86% of employee-only premiums. Dependent premiums are subsidized by 70%.

Vacation Time PTO (based on years employed)

Eligible employees accrue 2 weeks per year during their first two years of employment, and gain an  additional week at years 3, 6, and 10.

This benefit is pro-rated for regular, part-time employees. Unused hours carry over year to year, up to 200 hours.

Personal / Cultural Days PTO

OMSI recognizes that many holidays in the US are Eurocentric / Christian-focused and do not  necessarily reflect the diversity of celebrations amongst our staff. This benefit provides staff the time to celebrate / respect holidays that are meaningful to them on an individual basis, as well as take time to handle personal matters that come up throughout the year.

Eligible employees receive 12 Personal / Cultural days.

This benefit is pro-rated for regular, part-time employees.

Wellness Time

OMSI’s Wellness Time is a reflection of—and part of a larger strategy—towards our continual goal of destigmatizing mental health and providing space for our employees to care for their whole-being.

2 weeks per year, with carry-over of unused hours (up to 520 hours).
