Former Business Development Associate in Rosslyn, VA, Virginia

Very few vacation and paid time off were available to employees, which was a standard package for entry level positions. However, many of Politico's competitors offer substantially more PTO and are able to attract better talent.

Two weeks is not enough at a company that demands so much of its employees and gives back so little.

Pretty standard 2 weeks vacation for most people.

Starting with 2 weeks you need to negotiate for more. Start with 3 weeks.
