I just passed my 10-year mark at my company and when you do that, you get four weeks of vacation, which I'm very grateful for.
I usually use only half of it though because they have a perk where you can get paid for up to half of your vacation time if you don't use it. That's two weeks pay.
I like having this "extra" income. It really comes in handy, especially around the holidays.
Also, as the sole copywriter for a national catalog company, I don't really have a back-up for my job. I worry that if I'm gone for an extended vacation, the work won't get done and I'll come back to a huge pile-up of projects. I hate coming back to hundreds of emails.
