My boss was very flexible
Varies by department. Mine only ensures 20 days, including federal holidays.
Because we were a state university, the legislature did not vote for a pay increase, but instead of the pay increase, they gave each employee and extra week of vacation time to make up for the lack of a raise.
After being vested for 5 years, you get 11 hours each month of vacation and about the same each month for sick.
One does not have to ever work, and no one would care, or even notice
Vacation and PTO is great for EPA staff. It is not as good for entry-level SPA staff.
Arrange time off with your PI can be extremely easy. If you play your cards right, you probably will never have as flexible as situation as when you are a graduate student.
Vacation and paid time off are fine.
Good amount of vacation leave, usually with bonus. Standard sick leave with short and long term disability. And a wide variety of holidays. Flexible work hours for many positions also helps conserve leave for when it is actually needed. The years of service increases could be decreased a bit to keep up with market.
Terrible package that when reaching a certain point could only be sold back at a percentage of the original full amount. It felt like being penalized for not taking vacation after working so hard to accumulate it.
