Free health insurance, not including prescription coverage. As a first year ADA you get 15 days vacation. Each year in the office you get 5 more days until a max of 25 days per year. You pretty much have to take a week in December around the holidays and a week in the summer unless you're saving them for some reason (baby on the way, honeymoon, etc). If you're starting in Criminal Court you get a comp day for every weekend that you work. These can be used any time. I'm not sure if this will continue once they finalize the transition to vertical prosecution. A lot is changing in the office.
Any idea whether free health insurance is something that ADAs at all the NYC offices enjoy, or is this just Bronx?
All ADA offices get health insurance as NYC employees. I'm unaware of any special arrangements that Bronx (or other offices) have. Of course, you can deduct more from your salary to get better coverage, but I'm certain that basic health insurance is available in each office.
