Seems like people are taking a lot of convenience from the work place. If you have an emergency situation or sick, they would let you take a day off easily.
Fair amount of vacation and PTO
Easy to get the time off you need.
Good and consistent policies. HR folks often have excellent empathy and understanding.
time off is accrued based on how long you work there, but vacation days can roll over to the next year
Adequate paid time off and generous sick leave. These benefits are separate and therefore if you're sick, you don't have to worry about burning your vacation time to stay home and get better.
An employee does not accrue enough time per pay period. The Smithsonian does not allow you to accumulate hours like other organizations.
The actual amount of time you're getting is quite good. HOWEVER, you'll have to go to war with your boss to actually take any of it due to low manning, owing to extremely poor personnel management and hiring practices.
Great to get all federal holidays off but wish we started with more than 4 hours per pay period for paid time off.
You dont get any as a contractor
