    Plenty of time off, which increases with seniority. There are blackouts, of course.

    one of the companies which still keep PTO. PTO is good and vacation is relatively OK.

    The vacation time that you are awarded is okay, but often times you are unable to use that vacation and you will be required to work from home when off often.
