    Generous allocation of days for vacation

    This is almost always granted without questions. People usually just take time off when they need to, not dictated by business needs.

    I had the same amount of vacation starting out in my career. To be at the career midpoint, three weeks is not a lot.

    Up to five weeks of vacation with 11 or more years of tenure.

    They offer great PTO and many public holidays

    Can carry over 15 days to next year. And you get extra vacation after working at Microsoft for 5 years. Get more public holidays like Martin Luther King day and president day.
