Thanks whyohwhyoh.

How in the world do you get 6 weeks of vacation per year. Just a generous perk? Gov't job?

I'm a software developer at a relocation company (real estate). I have 4 weeks and will get a 5th after being here 12 years. And I thought my company was incredibly generous. 4 weeks is the most I had ever heard people getting before this.

But in my experience, everytime I get near those lofty levels, a re-org or layoff occurs and I have to start over with 2 weeks at a new company.
