    SAS gives two weeks of vacation a year, plus floating holidays to be used whenever. They also shutdown for a week during the holidays to let everyone spend time with their family, along with the standard set of holidays off during the year. Vacation time will vary per team, but I've never had a problem taking time off, and have even been encouraged to take days here or there if I haven't for a while.

    The 10 year gap for the next vacation tier is too long.

    Three weeks plus the week of Winter/Christmas! Unlimited Sick Time. And an additional week after 10years employment. No other employer offers this much time off to new employees.
