    FTO so you quite a bit of time off.

    They have FTO allowing you to use as much time as you want but it really depends on your department for how much you actually get to use.

    Salary based employees use Flex time/unlimited PTO. Hourly employees accrue up to 4 weeks a year until the 5 year mark, at which point you accrue 5 weeks a year. At the 5 year mark you can also bank up to 120 hours (80 hours for employees with less than 5 years). Your PTO can be used for sick time, but they also allow you to work from home which encourages people to stay home when sick. In my almost 10 years there I have never felt the need to actually take a paid sick day, and managers are understanding if you feel ill and decide to work from home even if it slows your work down a bit. DG has been great at allowing time off when I want/need it, and even pay out 3 weeks of paternity leave.

    Pretty good vacation until they went to the alleged "Flex Time / Unlimited PTO", which of course doesn't really exist. Problem is that mgmt loads you up with so much work that the conscientious employees will end up on the short side. Also with the new 'Flex/Unlimited', plan, a new employee could get as much vacation as someone who has been there 5 or more years.

    Very flexible with schedules and honoring time off as time off.

    your PTO is capped (unless you're management, then you do whatever you want), no sick days, can't take more than 2 weeks off despite advertising that you get 4 weeks off a year.

    They limited the amount you can accrue to 80 hours at any time (given 120 - 160 hours to use total)
