How serious is the 17 day vacation policy at Stripe? Is it strictly enforced or do managers do their own thing? The number of days seems on quite the low end based on their competitors.

      Recruiter said it was only 17, for all levels. The recruiter is based in Seattle though, is there a difference based on location?

      No. It's officially 21, but 4 of those are in December, when the whole company shuts down. So that's why they say 17.
      However, if you do want to work through December, you can then apply those 4 days (that you worked while nobody else did) elsewhere.

      Have used total of 6 weeks (spread over 4 separate trips) in the past one year traveling the world and vacationing. Using 5 more (sabbatical) end of the year to do some more of that.

      I have a goal of traveling to a new country every 3 months, and I like to spend 6-7 vacation days per trip. That's 24-28 days a year, so 17 would be quite limiting.

      Hmm, thanks! That wasn't in the offer, so I'm sending an email to verify.

      I wouldn’t go on a vacation using those but they are particularly great for health related issues including mental health.

      Yes, definitely! I was mentioning that as an aside. I'll talk with the hiring manager about how flexible this 21* (17) vacation policy is for their team.

    That's super low. But I would be fine with it if they allow working remotely for a bit while on holidays

    Yeah agree it does seem low. Unlimited would be real nice. More flexible. 🤷‍♂️

    The company shuts down between December 25 and January 1, which is an extra 4 days. You do not have to use these days from December 25 to January 1.
