Lots of time off as the years go by but low pay.
Can't roll over the total amount of accumlated vaction days
Northwestern is fairly generous with vacation and paid time off, which helps considering their salary levels are lower than in companies.
Best thing is that we have flexible hours and so the vacation can be planned in advance
start with 3 week, but does not get to 4 weeks until after 9 years. but you can carry over
Management level start with 3 weeks of vacation, some available for use after 3 months.
You get a lot of PTO here, the only downside is that vacation time is accrued on an hourly basis which is difficult when you need to take a larger chunk of time off.
Could use more vacation time or be granted it upfront every year instead of earned incrementally.
Sick days are separate from paid-time-off (vacation) days.
For the amount of work I do, and I don't get paid overtime. The vacation time is not enough.
