Full time employees accrue 15 days, earned proportionately per pay period. The accrual rate increases after ten, fifteen and twenty years of service.
The amount of vacation you start with at LLNL is healthy: three weeks. But, then it builds very slowly as your years of service increase. It takes a long time to build beyond that initial three weeks.
Receiving 3 weeks paid time off once hired is excellent, though you wait 10 years for 3 more days off! Company encourages staff to vacation, but some projects make it difficult to actually take time off.
Both were separate from each other, which made taking a day when you were ill not stressful from taking away from your vacation time.
12 days for vacation and 10 day for sick leave during a whole year, in addition to the national holidays. It is all right but not great.
The amount of paid vacation increases with years of service, which is wonderful. It would be nice not to have a cap on the number of hours we can accrue or be paid for a certain amount.
Decent, but not as great once you realize they don't offer comp time or flexible schedules.
3 weeks' vacation to start but it doesn't increase until 10 years. Consider increasing after 5 years. Holidays and sick leave are generous.
Was non negotiable at time of hire.
Vacation is increased by years of service. All vacation and sick time is rolled over to the next year. Once you get up to a specific amount you will loose the hours.
I had no vacation or paid time off
