    I had 10 days of combined, vacation & sick leave, but we were routinely "strongly encouraged" to take 5-8 of those days over the week of Christmas so that they could shut down our office, even though we had work to do.

    Getting Federal Holidays and a few weeks of comp leave right out of the gate is nice, but when you realize that there is no paid sick leave and that comp leave cannot be negotiated, it's less nice.

    accrued days, you don't come in with a pre-set number of time off.

    Not all fringe packages are competitive. As others have mentioned, no sick leave, no paternity leave, no vacation, only comprehensive leave. The Comp Leave is accrued per hours worked; for example, I earn 1.85 hours per work week; so I can work 5 weeks for 8 hours off, or ~10 days per year. To offset this, two elective holidays are offered per year (so ~12 days off per year). I am blown away to see some people state 40 days of comp leave, or even 19 -- must be nice!

    PTO amount was 19 days, which is decent.

    SAIC has a standard plan for time off (Combined). 1-3 years is a certain amount, 4-6 is increased by 2 weeks, 7-10 by another 2 weeks, etc. etc. There is no flexibility for negotiating this when coming into the company.

    Not the best in the industry, but not the worst either.

    Seems on par with competitors.
