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.
Vacation and sick leave can be carried over. The longer you work, more vacation hours you earn (up to 5- 6 weeks)
Pretty generous PTO policy compared to private sector.
Average depending on your team
The accrual system is clear and fair. Max is 4 weeks and there is a rollover allowed if it is not all used.
