Depends on the size of the company. The larger they are the less likely you can negotiate tenure or non-salary benefits.

Vacation - yes; vesting - likely not. The vesting is generally all or none, so they can’t do it for one or two people; however the vacation is internal and more flexibility. I know of people at big4 who have successfully negotiated for higher PTO/vacation time. And those are pretty large companies.
