    You get it allocated, and most of the time you can take it. Over the last 4 years I have been interrupted on vacation for restructuring the BU issues several times. There are not good boundaries for employees when they want some time off.

    In IBM GBS, if you take vacation it is counted against your productivity so ain't that great.

    I take time off as needed. The unfortunate part of the job is that it never ends and I work weekends and holidays often.

    vacations and paid time offs are not frowned upon. employees have luxury to take as many paid time off as long as work gets done.
