Microsoft grants 15 paid vacation days plus two personal days per year.
Unlike some companies who claim "unlimited vacation" (thus making employees look over their shoulders whenever they take a day off), Microsoft has a fixed allotment of days that grows with your years of service. Employees know exactly how much vacation they can take, without worrying. Even better, managers are willing to let employees "borrow" a few days of vacation if they don't have enough.
Better vacation policy in the city. the more you stay the better you get
No big shakes. Two weeks of vacation per year ( 10 working days ) and I don't remember any mention or execution of a "paid time off" benefit. if you took time off ( which had to be sanctioned by your manager) that didn't fall into any of the standard buckets it was at your expense & cost i.e. no pay.
Time accumulates over the years to a certain level. two paid holidays and three weeks to start.
3-5 weeks of paid vacation, 2 personal days, plus 10 holidays. More time than I can use!
Standard amount of PTO, more would be better
3 weeks to start then you get 4 weeks at year 6. I believe you can earn up to 5 weeks. Employees also get 2 weeks of sick leave on top.
It's fairly standard - federal holidays plus roughly 3 weeks, and a graduated accrual rate that increases with seniority.
401K matching is great. Also, they recently added 3 month paid leave for dependent care.
Takes quite long to accumulate max vacation time off (25 days) - 12 years. People start with 15 days
