    Northwestern is fairly generous with vacation and paid time off, which helps considering their salary levels are lower than in companies.

    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.
