    Generous ~19 days per year PTO at start, and grows every 5 years up to 10 years. Employees who have been with Garmin 10+ years have a hard time using it all it accrues so quickly.

    I worked here for a while, so new hire's experience may vary, but I need to be actively spending my PTO in order for it to no go unused. You can "only" keep up to 580 hours of PTO.

    The hard part is starting at zero. You have to earn it as you go. So in that first year you really can't take any time off until you have some saved up. Once you get going, though, you'll eventually have a hard time spending it all. At 10 years I'm making 27 days a year. We can bank up to 14 weeks, which is not uncommon to hit if you stick around long enough.

    Fairly generous PTO plan. Difficult to compete with unlimited PTO as is offered elsewhere, but gives more up-front PTO to new hires than most companies I've worked for.

    You start with 17 PTO days (sick & vacation time) that accrues hourly. Rolls over from year to year and you can accrue up to 14 weeks total.

    They give you a good amount of paid time off

    PTO accumulates quickly after 5 years, and there is no differentiation between sick days and vacation.

    9 holidays including day after thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.

    a decent amount of vacation time is given. Vacation, sick, personal, etc is all in one bucket.
