phd no vacation, no vation
Accruing hours for Paid Time Off is easy
Only 10 days a year for employees under 5 years. Vacation does not roll over.
Many departments are very flexible
Hard to accumulate vacation days, but better than having none.
Full-time employees receive 10 days paid vacation (this increases to 15 years if you work more than 4 years at Duke), 12 days sick leave, and 13 days paid holidays.
great for salaried employees, but not as much for hourly
Duke gives very generous PTO for hourly & salaried employees. Duke really does attempt to help provide employees a great work/ life balance in this way.
