Standard is 3 weeks of vacation. Many, Many employees and myself have been ridiculed or forced not to take vacations. Only the good employees this will happen to.
Basic is 15 plus 6 personal days plus US Holidays plus sick days.
No carryover but 20 days after 10 years and 12 holidays.
Extreme flexibility. I don't even know how many vacation days i have.
The PTO is prorated for Intern and I got 2 days PTO for 2 and half months. I didn't use any of it, Since its, an intern role and I wanted to use the opportunity as much as possible.
15 days plus 5 floating holidays.
15 days and 3 personal days
Good vacation time is great just not enough time to take it
Three weeks of vacation from day 1. 12 company paid holidays per yr. pluses in my book. Capped at 20 days for employees wanting to be a career employee
IBM has expanded vacation time off so new employees do not have to wait 10 years for 3 weeks vacation. The biggest challenge at IBM is not in accumulating vacation time, it is being able to take the time off without impacting the business you are supporting. I routinely worked over Christmas and New Years.
