Whether it’s a trip to visit family for the holidays or an adventure across the globe, nothing feels better than a vacation. If you’re looking for a company with a better vacation policy, a new report by jobs platform, and employer review websites have you covered.

Highest Rated Companies for Vacation & Paid Time Off

As it turns out, employees at some companies rarely find themselves in these predicaments because they’re afforded ample vacation time, or their unused days roll over to the next calendar year.

To find which companies have some of the best vacations and paid time off (PTO) policies, Glassdoor did some digging.

Using many legit reviews shared by employees, the careers website just released a new list of the Highest Rated Companies for Vacation and Paid Time Off. Let me share them with you.

Highest Rated Companies for Vacation & Paid Time Off

1. Amgen Inc.

Amgen is a biotechnology company headquartered in Thousand Oaks, California.

Vacation and paid time off rating: 4.7/5

Company rating: 3.6/5

Employees say: You can start with three weeks vacation plus two shutdowns over the Fourth of July and Christmas which provide great opportunities to spend time with family.

Amgen employees say that “to start with five weeks is pretty amazing” and while this may be average by European standards, Amgen’s vacation and paid time off benefits are quite competitive by large US company standards.

Maybe the fact that employees say the benefits are “too good to be true” is why Amgen clocks in at No. 1.

2. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center, based in New York, New York.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center‘s employees call out that there is lots of vacation time — they don’t pressure you to not take it.

The company’s employees can receive 20 vacation days, plus float holiday days, sick days, and personal days and employees like that “nobody asks questions or makes you feel guilty for taking the time either which is a breath of fresh air.”
