Not too many days off when just starting. You do get paid out your vacation time when you leave the company.
1 day/month the first year, 2 days/month the following
Significant vacation and sick time; Northwestern separates the two, so if you are used to PTO, that takes some getting used to. Instead of 30 days PTO, which you can use however you'd like, it would be more like 15 sick days, to be used only for your/family member's illness and 15 vacation days.
You get a nice winter break off
When earn this is great you can get up to a month in vacation
When you start working at NU you start accumulation vacation & paid time off.
Winter recess (PTO) from Christmas Eve through New Year's Day. 15 VAC until you've worked 10 years (increases to 20 days, and then 25 days at 20 years). Everyone gets (3) Personal Floating holidays as well.
3 weeks paid time off is good and more holiday vacation time compared with before.
Not bad, but could be more to cover kids days off from school that you do not get at the University.
to start: 3 weeks vacation and 3 personal days
