I compare # of days to each other, but you can also divide your salary by 2040 to get your hourly wage and multiply that by (8 * the # of vacation days) to get a dollar estimate for the vacation days

If you use this method, make sure you multiply it by a factor that approximates what portion of it you will realistically take in a given year. Hopefully it’s 100%

I look at it a bit opposite. Factor yearly work hours (total hours - holidays - leave). Take your total comp divided by that to get a comparison number.
