Icertis, a provider of contract management software, is Samir Bodas fifth startup. At his previous companies, employees didnt take vacations. So he and cofounder Monish Darda close up shop the first week of July when the weather is good and families can spend some time together.

Employees also get 10 paid company holidays, 15 days of personal vacation and two floating paid vacation days at years end. Wait, theres more. Icertis offers a parental leave package that entails four months at 100 percent pay and then eight months of flex work.
