In addition to paid time off and sick time, the University offers most staff many of the "bonus" days off that we all love: Columbus Day, Veteran's Day, and don't forget the Massachusetts special, Patriot's Day (AKA Marathon Day).
Great amount of time off
Lots of hours for both vacation and sick time. You get christmas week off without having to take your own time.
vacation is 3 weeks for most positions, but intercession (winter break week) is a given. That it pretty standard for schools in the area, however
20 vacation days + holidays
Generous vacation with 1 week off over December holidays
More paid days off than I've seen anywhere else. The whole week between Christmas and New Years is just paid time off as part of university intersession.
Vacation time and sick time are accrued separately, so it ends up being a pretty generous offer. Staff also get some holidays for winter break and other student holidays.
You can accrue up to two years which is unusual and if you have been there more than 15 years then your vacation time gets increased from 20 to 25 days
You accrue PTO at 12.66 hours per month and lots of sick time.
