I get no official vaction time.

But Middle of June to the end of August is nice to have off. Two weeks at Xmas one week in the Spring and a crap load of 3 day weekends.

nice

5 wks/yr + 1 year rollover period

and since most of my work can be done remotely my ski trips hardly make a dent in my vacation banked time

I'm currently accruing at a rate of 3 weeks per year (have about 120 hours in the 'bank already), plus sitting on over 15 days' sick and 1 floating holiday (we get 3 'floaters' per year).

What's nice about being a salaried (exempt) employee is, I can take half a day off and don't have to use PTO.

I make my own schedule, I have officially 2 weeks PTO. But it works out more like 6-8 weeks a year, it's great to have your boss living 300 miles away and run your own territory.

I get 3 weeks plus 3 floater days and rolled 3 weeks into this year, so I had 6 weeks. I took a few off already, but its getting really hard to get off. Way too much going on.

4 weeks + whatever floating holidays/personal days we get a year. I've got over 5 weeks vacation in the bank.

Luckily, I can telecommute on days I need to be at home for something.

I get 20 days of PTO. they took our sick days away so now we have to use our PTO days if we are sick. they also took some of our holidays away. we just get the basic 6 now. no more thanksgiving AND the day after (have to burn a PTO day), no more xmas and new years eve off, only get the xmas and new years day. and they took our floater away too.
We can only bank 5 days per year and have to use those first the next year before we take our normal days. Any days over the 5, you loose.
Also, we only accrue the days on a monthly basis throughout the year. i just dont GET them. if i take a week in january, i OWE the company the time, so if i was to quit in Feb, i would have to pay them back
so in essence if i were to take all that into account, i only get 12 days of actual PTO (2 holidays, 1 floater and 5 sick days)... all after 7 years of service

3 weeks vacation, 3 personal days (really vacation), and 1 week between christmas+new year. If I have to call in sick, it doesn't count towards any of those days either.
