    Winter break is great! Though as PhD students you still need to work.

    Duke uses a paid holiday system called Discretionary Days, which includes the usual national holidays. If you needed to work on a given holiday you can apply the time off to a different date. Earned vacation days roll over each year, there is a maximum but it's quite large. You can stockpile a maximum of 20 days' worth of vacation time with up to 4 years' service; max 30 days from 4-9 years service; and max 40 days if at Duke >9 years.

    The paid time off and sick leave rolls over every years so it ends up accumulating very quickly. I was able to get all 12 weeks paid for maternity leave using my vacation and sick leave.

    Up to 4 weeks vacation, plus sick time, and 7 or 8 holidays. Not too shabby.

    I received generous amounts of vacation and sick time. And Duke has a program that allows employees to share unused sick time with others who need it.
