When you’re considering job offers and the benefits at each company, how many PTO days are the norm? What’s considered “good”? Is there an industry standard or average in the US?

Unlimited is the best! /s

funny

Unlimited is a myth.. 😂

Any place that starts with 2 weeks is subpar to me and I wouldn’t take an offer - seen that in some pharmaceutical industries

like

Yeah I just signed an offer in pharma consulting and got 3 weeks. Could be worse. Could be better.

20 is average 25 is good 30 is great. Unlimited depends. 15 sucks

like

It would say 20 is fairly standard if not slightly good for most industry roles

I wonder if any place outside of consulting are offering 25

I guess I have to sign an SOW for an example

15-20 is standard. 21-28 is ideal/great.

How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
