The big banks may not be as “vampire squid-y” as people seem. Julie Steinberg at FINS has found a nice little vacation perk that employees at Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse get—an extra week off the year you get married.For some that we know, that break from a life of banking could probably be the great wedding present ever. From FINS

At Goldman, you’re eligible for an additional week of vacation in the same year of your marriage, a policy that’s been in place since 1989. Domestic partnerships were added to the plan afterward.

At Credit Suisse, any employee who’s been with the bank for a year can get an extra week for their marriage or civil union. The one catch is the week needs to be used within two months of the marriage, so book those honeymoons early. The policy has been in place for over a decade and was extended to civil unions in 2005.
