I have worked for 17 years in a small company where I report directly to the president. He is the only employee above me. One other employee has been here as long as I have, and two others are within a couple of years of us (three of us are senior-level managers, the fourth is a lower-level supervisor). Aside from we four, there are no other employees anywhere close to having our seniority. We are also the longest-term employees the company has EVER had.
Our company policy allows for one week of paid vacation after one year, two weeks after three years, and three weeks after five years. I am trying to decide how to go about petitioning the president for an additional one week after 15 years (15 years = four weeks).
- Is 20 days of paid vacation after 15+ years unreasonable?
- And how should I go about it - should I do it alone? Should I involve the other very senior staff members (who I know would be interested)?
- What do we say?
