    3 weeks paid time off is pretty great, On top of that they give 2 weeks PBA for sick time or time with family, emergencies... etc.

    It's not unlimited but it's a generous amount at 4 weeks for senior employees

    The vacation policy is standard for large companies at only 10 days, which is normal but at times not sufficient

    They give you a lot of time off up front, 3-4 weeks if I remember correctly, however good luck trying to use it. Most gets book up right away on Jan 1st, so you have to plan your holidays 365 days ahead of time. You gain a additional time off for each year you are with the company. So if you stay with the company you might get 8 or more weeks.

    If you came in at a certain level, you automatically got 2 weeks of paid time off, a week at Christmas time, but not many bank holidays. Your sick leave was called Personal Business Administration - this was for sick time, meeting the AC repair person, taking certain holidays that the company didn't automatically give (Basically anything that was not Memorial Day, 4th July, Labor Day, T-Giving or Christmas), sick pets, children etc.. HOWEVER, the vacation plan was USE IT OR LOSE IT, that was made up (when I worked there) for after 3-5 years your vacation increased (in the US) based on the year you started - not the exact start date. So, for example, if you started in December of a year, that was the year that your countdown started to earn more vacation.

    Nothing impressive here. Two weeks until you hit 5 years, then you get another week. No sick're pretty much expected to work from home if you're least keep up with emails.
