14 days for new hire
They give you vacation time but the work load is so heavy, you cannot take it and you loose it at the end of the year. Plus it is an accrual basis. If you take all of your vacation in, lets say March, and then you are laid off, you will owe for un-accrued vacation. It is a very nasty way to hose people!
The most you get after 10 years of service is 5 weeks of vacation days.
pto is average for the industry
Two weeks paid vacation per year.
Include personal time off in addition to vacation in the US
Clearly defined and accumulates immediately
There is good vacation policy in the company.
The amount of vacation was not what market holds for the number of years of experience I had. BUT managerial discretion for bereavement was good as they gave me a week off to take care of my monther's arrangements when she passed.
Good - I get 4 weeks plus floating holidays. The issue is whether i'm able to take off all of the days ...
