    Your first year you get something like 15 days on top of the paid holidays and factory shutdown days. Quickly increases from there. Depending on your team and manager you may have different experiences requesting time off. I personally have never had an issue as long as give at least two weeks notice to my team. It's on you to manage your project responsibilities.
