Amount of time is very good and sick leave is as well.
Generous vacation time allowances.
Technically we get 21 days of paid vacation a year but this really will depend on thesis adviser and his willingness to give you time off.
Up to industry standards
As far as entry level positions go it is as comprehensive as they come, whether it is compensatory for the low Seattle pay is up for debate.
It seems fair to me
depends on department and faculty/staff
depends on what your staff classification is - Classified Staff you earn less vacation and paid time off than Professional Staff.
Very generous vacation for faculty
Full-time employees are entitled to vacation, but academia positions often expect you not to use them.
