    recently changed to "unlimited" and many long-term employees lost built up time to a subjective bargaining

    Depends on one's direct manager but generally very good vacation policies from HR

    Although 3 weeks sounds good on the surface, there are two forced shutdowns during the year making family vacation planning very difficult. This year's Dec. shutdown is 9 days of forced vacation. The summer shutdown was 4. That leaves you with 2 flexible days of vacation. Have to wait until your 8'th year before you get an extra week of flexible vacation. Worst policy I've ever seen.

    Very flexible even for new hires and interns. 2 shutdowns in a year.

    Pretty average. Mandatory end of year shut-down uses 3-4 days every year. Based on my seniority, I was able to swing an extra week of vacation with my hiring manager on an informal basis.

    Vacation is excellent. Paid vacation and floating holiday

    8 days shutdown during Christmastime and 3 days around July 3 make scheduling rigid

    Their vacation and paid time off is reasonable and good
