How many PTO days at Google London and Zurich?

I was wondering how many PTO days people have at Google London and Zurich.
Planning to move there and I heard Europe in general is much more generous than US and Canada.

      Don’t know about LDN but I can confirm 25 for Zurich. I think it’s by Swiss law.

      Interview there? Zurich is a pretty large engineering site, they are definitely hiring.

      Just for vacation time? Don't. Google US gives 25 days PTO too, just not immediately but after a few years with the company.

      After 5 I think. You can always top them off if you need with unpaid leave or getting sick. Zurich's a fine place to chill and coast, but when optimizing for TC and growth, it's not the right place to be in, all google's high vis projects and other high TC employers are in Bay Area.

      But they don't carry over the weekends in Switzerland so it's actually less than in other countries
