    Three weeks to start and very accommodating

    Accrued time off depending on how long you work.

    3 weeks vacation per year, and 12 days sick leave (accumulated each pay period) per year. After 10 years of service, that goes up but not by much.

    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.
