I am a lecturer so even if I have a fixed number of days off I organize my own schedule
Very few days are available as vacation days, paid time off is compensated well.
plenty of vacation days, sick leave, and university holidays
Employees accumulate 2 Vacation days a month and 2 (maybe 3 depending on length of employment) Personal days a year. Standard holidays are paid. Sick days are unlimited, the New York Family Sick Leave Act also provides 5 (or 7) days off for family sick time. You can carry over 23 unused Vacation days every year.
in some cases its frustrating to constantly see people being absent while time sensitive projects are going on
You get 2 days accrued every month and pay sick days and personal day. All in all it was about 27-29 a years you had to use.
Vacation is OK. I think it is 2 weeks and all official holidays are paid.
23 paid days off for your vacation.
I get so much vacation time I can never take it all
It is great for graduate research assistant to have a month paid time off for holidays
