This is a European company and they provide paid leave for maternity plus you were encouraged to take the vacation time. The environment was so very conducive to balancing work life experience and was very supportive of your family life. Unlike American corporations there wasnt the pressure to work 24/7 and your job was going to be there for you when you came back...no need to worry you were being eliminated.
Three weeks to start and then a week more every 5 years until you get to six weeks (at which time very few people survive the layoffs)
flexible work schedule. allow work remotely. great PTO policy if you can stay long enough.
20 days PTO after 5 years of service.
the worst thing currently is that they do not buy back if you have over 40 hours
Siemens implemented a new policy and decreased PTO.
Not enough, and you are so overloaded you often have to work while on vacations (assuming you get a chance to get away)
Comparable with other European companies in the sector
You start with the company at 4 weeks and it goes up to 5 weeks within 5 years of working with the company.
Vacation is very good. Starting is four weeks and the maximum is 7 weeks. I used to get six weeks, which was nice but could carry over only 40 hours every year.
