    Good two weeks when you start but are taken when they are shut down. Can't take days when you want.

    GE eliminated specific vacation time and moved to Permissive time off; They sell Permissive time off as "unlimited" and always available, until you ask for time off and your request is denied.

    There is no limit but you can't take much due to work pressure. Although senior Managers are enjoying it.
