    All time off is classified as personal time (PTO) and is lumped into one pool of hours. You can use it for vacation or sick leave as-needed. Generally it is not a big deal to take time off if you are professional and manage your work well.

    PTO is good but vacation is less (paid holidays) compared to the competition.

    ample time off and theyre flexible on things, also they work 4 10s and a 4 which may appeal to some.

    3 weeks of paid vacation per year, but you are expected to work through it if something comes up at the office - which is often.

    They are great about allowing you time off when working away. Sometimes paid sometimes not paid but at any rate a day at home with family is a great day when working weeks at a time hundreds if not thousands of miles away

    Good starting PTO makes up for minimal paid holidays. Flexible managers
