    Plenty of paid time off. Between vacation time, personal choice holidays, site holidays, and management directed time off, there is no shortage of vacation time.

    The amount of vacation time (4 - 6 weeks, depending on time with the company) seems standard for the industry.

    there's no life/work balance at IBM. They expect you to check emails on your vacation. And, now vacation has to be accrued vs provided up front (even for a 20 year veteran)

    Was never allowed to take vacation, and was not able to take my full paternity (had to fight just to get 2 of the 6 weeks).

    Love the vacation and time off option. 12 holidays a year, some of the days are optional and depending on the years of service 15-25 days of vacation days

    Lots of vacation which grows if you stay. Very flexible with family or medical needs.
