As a salaried employee, you get 22 days off as soon as you start working. This is the most generous of any company I've worked at, plus they are usually flexible with work-from-home options (depending on your supervisor), There is an emphasis on work-life balance which is more than lip service as management is very supportive of outside responsibilities. The job is pretty relaxed (meaning boring) since there is little urgency on the part of clients and coworkers. Overtime is usually only required for conferences and meetings, and seldom needed. Everyone is very friendly and there is a lot of socialization within the department, which can be overwhelming for a more private person.
