Zero. We have Use or Lose, last year I was promised I could carry my vacation over (can be approved by mgmt in certain situations, highest level mgr made the promise) if I cancelled my scheduled time off and worked the last two weeks to cover for other coworkers (vacation and COVID related). Jan 1 was moved under a different org and told they refused to approve it. I took all of Feb off and our busiest week in the summer off—just ‘cause. And got a job in another org with better mgmt in Sept.

Based on end of year accruals, I have three weeks of vacation remaining for the year. I’m hoping to use two of those in December.

Unlimited, but no way can I take them considering how busy we are.

3 Days

We roll over at the end of July. I have 23 left to last me through July. I am hoping to use them.

We’re unlimited and closed for the last 2 weeks of the year. I’ll take another 4-5 days to end at ~ 4 weeks this year.

I can approve my own. I work with my team on coverage and make sure the senior team member under me is not taking PTO at the same time as I am. Not quite whenever I want! And I definitely pull my share of holiday weeks/weekends.
