    NOTHING as a TVC. In fact, the company you contract with allows you to accrue 72 hours of sick leave a year, yet you're not allowed to take [or be paid for] beyond 24 hours.

    3 weeks per year for 3 years. 5 weeks per year after 5 years. They should give everyone 5 weeks sooner.

    The average amount of vacation & paid time off is given, but the companies bonus program makes the financial impacts too significant for many to take a vacation. Taking a week of vacation could easily reduce your annual bonus by at least $5K.

    Fully self-service. Convenient. Just warn your manager you'll be gone.
