    One of Western Unions overlooked and greatest benefits is the amount of PTO you get and the flexibility you have with it. Sick leave is not separated from PTO and in the US there are only 6 paid holidays outside of PTO, but the starting PTO package is high compared to other companies and if you've worked for the company for a while you will top out near 7 weeks of PTO to do with as you like. Good luck changing companies and finding a match like that!

    It kind of is five weeks - you get 24 days off plus one paid day off each year to volunteer outside of the company, so if you choose to do that, it is 25 days, or five weeks. Plus paid holidays. And as for sick days, most (though not all) departments will allow you to work from home rather than having to take a day off. And as for doctor's appointments, you are allowed 2 hours of a workday for a doctor appointment, so you probably won't even have to take a day off for that, I typically plan my appointments for later in the day and leave two hours earlier than I normally would. Western Union has great PTO, I really don't think most other companies would have it.

    As a new employee you will accrue 2 PTO days per month, for a total of 24 PTO days and 5 paid holidays.

    While the accrual rate for vacation is better than average, PTO is vacation, sick, bereavement, doctor's appointments, etc. So 120 hours a year quickly vanishes.

    Very generous vacation package 24 days off and more if you are higher up. But that is almost 5 weeks!
