quite good. 4-weeks.
Graduate students typcially don't have a work schedule.
New employees end up accruing 15 vacation days and 5 personal days plus a number of sick days in their first year.
Vacation accruals begin at 2 weeks/year, and increase to 3 wks/yr after 8 years of service. Compensation increases at average of 2% per year, below cost of living in Chicago; the time off benefit does not make up for this annual decrease in purchasing power.
I do not have any complaints about vacation and paid time off. All my needs were met.
Takes a LONG time to earn additional time off.
good amount of time off, pending management approval
this is dependent on your discussions with the employer. there is no hard and fast rule
I'm satisfied with the amount given. I can lead a good work life balance.
Excellent! Ends up being 5 weeks plus sick time
