    Days depending on your level. Managers get 19 days after holidays. They let everyone buy up to 5 extra days as a full time employee. We don't get columbus day or veterans day off but we get the day after Thanksgiving instead.

    No set holidays - they give you paid time off days and you use them when you want to (allows you to bank them and go on long trips). Bonus 4 "flex day" holidays given during the summertime.

    The longer you're with the company, the more vacation time you accrue. Starts at 4 weeks, extra week accrues at 5 year increments (5, 10, 15 - stops at 15). You can purchase up to an additional week, also.
