Microsoft grants 15 paid vacation days plus two personal days per year.
Overall, very competitive benefit package compared to most companies in the same category
good vacation accrual but hard to take time off, always have to pay for it when you get back
Very generous 3 weeks of vacation to start and paid holidays give you basically 6 weeks off to start
The best thing is that I received 3 weeks of vacation right when I started.
Microsoft benefits are probably among the top.
The best in industry esp the parental leave
Occurs slowly and no it doesn't increase for 7 years!
Great Vacation policy without sneering managers
Usually very flexible, allow self management of time off
3 weeks off per year is competitive with other tech companies.
