11 paid national holidays. If expected to work on a holiday, another paid day is provided. Over three weeks annual leave and an additional three weeks sick leave per year. Bereavement leave no questions asked.

Depending on your length of service, you get a ton of vacation time. Many years you can't even use it all as you get so much!

Pro: Vacation and time off is accumulated based on time on the job. Generous. Con: Sick time seems to be arbitrary.

The longer you work for the government the better this benefit is. Over time this benefit is excellent.

You get about 2 weeks of vacation a year, and about 2 weeks of sick leave as well.

Military time counts toward annual and sick leave growth. For the most part, if you have paid leave and want to take it no one bats an eye.

Seperate allowances for federal holidays, paid time off and sick leave
