Leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software closes all its offices between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day, calling it an Annual Week of Rest. The time off is fully paid. A new employee referral system establishes one payment, $3,000, as the reward for a successful referral. And of course there is still the paid sabbatical program: six weeks off every four years (390 employees took it last year).
