Benefits in Industry

I recently received a job offer from an industry position that seems equivalent to my current role in audit. I wasn’t looking to leave, but this potential employer is a company where I would be very happy to end up.

My question is about benefits. Currently, my Big 4 employer offers 25 days PTO, 12 holidays, and up to 6 months maternity/4 months paternity. It would take 20 YEARS to build up to the same PTO level if I accepted this position, plus no extra family leave. They’re offering 2 weeks of PTO and 10 holidays.
Am I still drinking the kool-aid, or are the benefits actually worth the busy seasons?
