CSC offers paid time off to eligible employees.
Good amount of time off.
2 weeks of vacation
Strange -- they changed it last year and not sure how it actually works now.
You don't get the 4th week of vacation until you've been there for 15 years.
Moved to a flexible vacation program.
Official vacation accruals have been eliminated in the US, you can take as many days as your manager approves.... Sick time is limited.
CSC no longer has accrued paid time off. Paid vacation is not earned based on hours worked. While paid vacation is offered, there is no guarantee it will be approved.
forces to take vacation due to management telling all that they need to get the vacation off there books
Pros: No vacation limit Cons: No worker protection for minimum vacation. No buildup of vacation. If you put it off and got laid off, no time is given. If you left voluntarily after no vacation taken, no accrual of vacation is paid either. If your relationship is bad with your manager or there is no easy way to bring someone to cover for you, then there is no vacation. The benefit to staying with CSC was an increased vacation accrual over years of service. That is now gone. You are required to trust in the benevolence of CSC in the matter, which is hard to swallow. The vacation policy is a good idea, but I believe it was implemented as company cost-cutting as they lay off thousands of workers in the next year.
The best part was 2 weeks of vacation the first year. The worst part was only 3 days of sick leave.
