    Combined sick and personal time is great for those who don't take/need many sick days. If you minimize your sick days, it is almost 4 full weeks of paid time off for relatively new employees.

    PTO is not the same as vacation time. If you are chronically ill, or have children who require various appointments, your PTO will be nickel-and-dimed away from you. You will never actually get a break. You will need a break, even more than the people who have better luck than you. But, you won't get one.

    Only a couple days given a year, have to use it when sick or any time you do not meet 40 hours. There is no working less than 40 even if you finish your work.

    Paid time off is pretty good when starting out. Not much difference for more senior employees though. You will need to use potentially 5 days for Christmas shut down though.

    Changed, now sick, vac. are pooled together so a lot of employees lost a lot of time off

    start off with 15 days then add a couple days every two years or so. You also get to saave or 'float' certain holidays so if you flex during that week you get another day of PTO. For example if you work 40 hours in 4 days the week of the 4th of july you can still take the 4th off but you get to save the holiday to use later. The company also shuts down for about a week up to 2 weeks during christmas which you can take unpaid and get extra time off on top of the floats and pto. You can also use the floats or PTO to cover that time.
