143 employees reported this benefit
Employees of Seagate receive Paid Time Off (PTO).
Flexible vacation program was implemented in early 2017. So no more accumulation of vacation hours. I don't know how employees have been using this flexible vacation program.
Moved away from vacation accrual to 'flex time', which is unlimited. Mgr does have the option to refuse requests for time off or ask that you be available while on leave, but seems like a good benefit.
Unlimited flexible vacation & paid time off
Seagate's benefits for paid vacations and time off are really very good, and they even combine floating paid company days off with holidays to give employees as much time off during Christmas holidays as possible.
Exempt employees: moving to flexible time off effective 5/1/17, where there is no fixed vacation accrual. Employees work with managers to take time off as needed. This provides more flexibility.
Terrible for most employees. 3wks for new employees with a maximum of 4wks for tenured employees
Vacation time was good so long as not during holiday season.
15 days annually on an accrual based by pay period. Can ask for PTO advance
Competitive for newbies but doesn't increase that much with tenure.
Degradation of vacation allowance over time
