How many vacation days have you been able to negotiate? Are you in a market that pays you for unused days? Do your days roll over to next year? If unlimited, how many do you actually take?

I'm now at an agency with unlimited PTO and I will be taking the same number of days (at least) that I got at my old agency (23). If you have unlimited PTO and you choose not to use what you are entitled to, then that's your very American-style problem

I’ve never used all of my days, but I have heard from people at shops with unlimited PTO (and I’ve seen studies that back this observation up) that people take far fewer days because the culture changes from “well, they must have the days” to “well, they must not care about work”

True. My “PTO” is now WFH.

“Unlimited PTO” is a ridiculous scam. It’s a way that employers pay out 0 vacation days when you leave, and squeeze you with guilt for the vacation you have every right to take.

I get 15 vacation, 5 personal, and 5 sick. I use every single day plus a few extra. None roll over but I would never not use my days. It’s important to take time off, people!!!

45 days in total. Amsterdam based. You can move days into the new year if you didn't take them all

I get 20 plus the week between Christmas and New Years. Since that was in the offer I didn’t negotiate. VP and above can roll up to 10 days into the next year but they have to be taken in the first 6 months. If you don’t use them you lose them. Unused days are paid out if you leave the agency but not that’s not inclusive of the days you roll over. What’s unlimited PTO?

like

1. 25 - my company factors in additional time for experience in the industry on top of the role's amount, which is nice. 2. None, sadly. 3. 5 days, I carried it over this year so have 30 days. 4. N/A

1. 25 PTO, plus 10 sick days a year, and holidays 2. No pay out. 3. PTO days roll over at a max of 5, to be used in next Quarter. Sick days stack to max 60, but are not paid out if unused. 4. NA

Is TBWA unlimited or is this for certain positions only?

1) 22 2) when you leave 3) up to 5. 4) N/A

OP must not like what the agency is giving him/her. Who gives a shit what people get - it is what it is.

Having open convos about things like this is a great privilege. If “it is what it is" to you, just unsubscribe from the Salaries channel or leave this app. Not sure why anyone would be here with that attitude. It’s simple to keep scrolling if you aren’t interested.

Unlimited pto is awesome. You just have to make sure you don't get all guilty for taking it.

20 plus the week between Christmas and New Years, plus the NY public holidays mentioned above. 5 roll over

I have been in sales even before college. I'm reaching a burn out. I feel like the expectations get higher the more work I put in and that ends with me putting on many hats to get done. I can't catch a break, let alone allowed a decent vacation without having to negotiate based on performance. I honestly don't want to be in sales forever. I'm versatile when it comes to any tasks due to the nature of wearing many hats. Any suggestions?

Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?

Recently 1 of my clients initiated open PTO policy. The transition from set leave balance to open was smooth process. However we are running into dilemma of how we standardize different types of leaves and whether there will be a limitation to how much open PTO is used at one time. For leisure, we just limit taking two weeks max at one time. However if we have volunteer policy or bereavement policy how should we standardize it? If EE is out for longterm sick, how do we standardize time paid?
