    Excellent vacation dates and plenty of Paid time off allows for a good work/life balance that is extremely important.

    As a new employee, I think the PTO is generous. Most companies I have worked for have only given 10 days of vacation and 5 days of sick/personal time with few holidays. As a brand new employee I receive 20 days of PTO to use as needed with 8 holidays and 2 floating holidays to use when you'd like. In total 30 days is pretty generous for a new hire. My colleagues have accrued so much they said they don't even know when to use it. Personally, I haven't had a better vacation policy in all the jobs I've worked so I would say it's a good policy for a new hire.

    Many want to honor traditions of what Symbol and MSI had in the past; two companies that were acquired and no longer exist. The evolving culture has new policies with an emphasis on containing the liability of paid time. It requires taking time off regularly, which is good, but there is no longer a bank over 40 hours.

    New policy is a thinly veiled attempt to manage finances which is couched in work-family balance. Beginning in 2017, an employee will only be allowed to carry 40hrs of vacation at any given time even though they are granted 4-6 wks depending on years of service. If one wants to take a two week vacation, they must go "negative". One 40hrs is reached, you cannot accrue until it is brought below 40 hrs. Hence, one must take time off every two-three weeks once the 40 hr accrual is reached to continue to earn. Interpretation: no large cash payouts for planned RIFs. They should have just stopped at limiting accrual to 1X and not allowing carryover. But forcing an employee to take PTO to avoid a 40 hr accrual max is not work life balance. Allow us to take PTO when it is best for our family lives!!! I am a 10yr+ employee this is the worst policy yet. Cant wait to see our benefits for 2017!

    15 days per year and can roll over 1.5x that amount so can carry as many as 22 days. This goes up to 20 days, 30 total rollover at 5 years. But, good luck using all of them, vacation time taken is not looked upon too highly

    You start with 22 days of PTO and 10 holidays, which is more than enough for me.

    Vacation and PTO was great under Symbol and MSI but it is unclear how Zebra will honor that tradition.
