How many vacation days can you get at your company?

What’s the standard vacation day policy at your company? Were you able to negotiate it?

I thought they’re usually negotiable but I hear that Google only gives 15 days for the first three years.

Is Facebook the same or more?

At Intuit it was 2 weeks for the first year and then 3 weeks after the second year. I wish I’d negotiated my vacation leave to be 3 weeks from the get go like a few others had.

      Why is that weird? What if he has some sort of freak accident?

      Weird wasn’t the right word. I guess uncommon?

      For a freak accident you can always use vacation days to tend to it. Not all employers like you taking sick for personal days however

      I think you misread. That’s 6 weeks vacay, not 6 days.

      So 6 weeks would be 30 days Vacay

    I have 20 vacation days. I didn't negotiate more. Most of the places where I worked, PTO days were effectively set in stone by policy and were non-negotiable.

      20 days is pretty great to start with

    15 days sick leave, 22 vacation days , 13 or 14 federal holidays, 4 personal days per year. On top of this you get spring break and days off from Christmas to new years. This is at a public university.

    21 + federal holidays...but the thing is, no one actually takes “vacation”. My coworker just got back from a 10-day trip to London. She didn’t actually use vacation time. They don’t hassle us about time off. If you need it, take it.

    23 days, ability to trade any company holiday for vacation by working through it (useful for a lot of the random ones), unlimited sick days and WFH days, plus a few extras like moving day when you join and wedding day.

    12 paid holidays
    25 vacation days (after 12 years)
    10 sick days (rarely used for me)

    Mildly curious if I could negotiate this good at another company?

      How many can you truly take?

    • VMware / Eng Black.Hat
      Truly I can take many. Very flexible. Most people in my team take time off whenever they want. Certainly more than a month every year. Manager is pretty cool and trusts you. Employees don’t misuse.

    15 days (goes up to 20 after 10 years) + 6 holidays and 5-6 personal choice/holidays + ~11 sick days (used to be unlimited) at IBM.

      There used to be an additional tier of 25 days after 20 years. I know a bunch of people grandfathered into that one.

    • IBM fTaY55
      Didn’t mean to imply that 20 was max. That’s just all that I’m personally aware of. None of the IBMers I know that are at 20+ years take that much time off but even if they did they are all execs and no one is counting their days.

    We could take off 2 days a week (paid). That is as many as 52*2=104 days. Isn’t that great?

    Unlimited, but before that was 20 PTO+ 6 fixed holidays. So I generally take around that many now.
