    The University of Washington has 10 paid holidays every year and 1 personal holiday; this helps guarantee some break from the usual routine throughout the year. Work from home is also allowed.

    The usual 11 -12 days mandated by Federal and State holidays. The dirty secret of being a state employee is that a lot of folks take off early before a holiday or "flex" their Fridays in the summer.

    As long as it doesn't affect the workflow, supervisors have no problem approving them.

    Good if you are not a temporary employee.

    A decent amount of leave as a first-year classified employee; however, I found it shocking that the week between Christmas and New Years is business-as-usual.

    Vacation accrual is good. Sick is ok. They worst thing is that they accrue them separately. Would be nice if in same pool and they trusted employee to use and save time for illness.

    You accrue vacation and sick leave with each pay period, but as a new employee don't expect to accrue it very fast. Until you've been there for a year, you don't have access to family medical leave. I had to have surgery after I'd only been working there for 9 months, and I had to use sick leave and vacation to cover all of my time off for recovery.

    I'm sure everyone anywhere wishes there was more -- I would prefer European style -- but it seems good for America.
