    Fantastic, I got about 4 hours vacation time every two weeks. After some time I got bumped up to a little over 6 hours per two weeks.

    Full time, salaried employees get flex time off which is very much like unlimited time off (even if we don't use it all :) )

    Generous vacation time, extremely inflexible with short term requests. As a parent I don't know when my children, myself or a dependent will be sick. I don't know when something will come up. Basically with 2 personal days and 6 days of sick time, you cannot have more than 8 days (calling in the day of or a day you weren't able to get approved a minimum of 2 weeks in advance pending all of the allotted hours haven't been already requested by another employee. It is a very big stressor and with over 60 hours banked in vacation time, I shouldn't have to lose my job as a loyal employee to take a same day absence. Life happens. All or most of the other departments in the company have unlimited vacation. To those who make this decision please consider that the people on the front lines building business and taking tough with constant abuse and belittlement multiple times of day... please consider compassion and flexibility for those of us who are trying to do it all.

    Taking time off is very flexible. There is no concept of vacation time or PTO, you just take the time you need and coordinate with your team!

    Used to be amazing but recent company policy changes make it next to impossible to take time off

    Its great knowing you can take the time off to be with family and friends and know you are still going to be getting a paycheck

    Flex time off is awesome. Depending on the team you're on, they can be very liberal with it as long as you perform well.

    Vacation time at Godaddy appears to be frowned upon. They may not agree, but that is kind of how employees feel. I know another employee that had a family emergency. She even provided proof to her supervisor. But the Supervisor gave her a verbal warning for her file the next day. I just feel that was unncessary. If it happened multiple times, then maybe then it would be ok, but not on the first time with proof.
