    People take vacation-- a lot of autonomy on when to take them!

    Best: Relatively high number of PTO days Worst: Sometimes difficult to use them all

    Depends on the faculty member but Phd. Students are entitled to 11 days plus holidays. Some faculty allow you to take more depending on your situation.

    In New York, there are 15 days of paid leave. I don't think this is enough!

    Lots of vacation time. I never felt I needed more and never encountered push back from management about time off. It felt easy and transparent and there was very little culture of "vacation taking is bad".
