Gensler grants paid time off and paid holidays.
Recently upped the amount of PTO offered to newer staff, but did not up the amount given to more tenured staff. PTO combines vacation and sick days into a single number to use for either need.
PTO time is generous
There no of PTOs vary according your level of experience at The company. It starts at 18 and goes till 25 days per year.
Good PTO and holiday time provided and you get more the longer you are with the firm.
Just recently Gensler has made adjustments to our PTO policy and it has been wonderful for us to be able to accrue so many hours| days a month. I am extremely pleased.
Accrues per pay period. The longer you stay with the company, the higher your PTO rate is.
Sick Leave is included in PTO.
You have to be at the company for 5 years before your PTO accrual increases and it's not very much (14 days, which is vacation and sick time combined). Part-time employees get TERRIBLE time off accruals (4-6 days/year depending on scheduled hours worked).
Because vacation and sick time are lumped together as PTO, you have to be judicious about taking days for vacation because you need a cushion for sick time.
The amount of PTO is pretty low in the industry.
