    It is only good if you have the opportunity to take it. Twice in my career I lost days as the work requirements did not afford the opportunity to take vacation

    Accounting for and approving comp and travel time is difficult in the outdated system and tedious. That said, if you learn how to use it well you can accrue quite a bit of time off.

    For a new employee (less than 3 years) you only accrue 4 hours sick/leave per pay period for the first 3 years which breaks down to about only 2.4 weeks time off per year and it has to be earned.

    Based on time in service, the amount accumulated is adjusted. If a veteran, amount is higher than non veterans. The annual days of leave a year are pretty good, as well as annual days of sick leave.

    Depending on your grade/rank and time working for the government, you can earn 30 days of leave every year in addition to Federal Holidays. Sick leave is considered separately. You can also carry over unused leave to the next year.
