In wrapping up my employment, I've encountered an interesting PTO/vacation situation. But I don't feel like writing, so I will provide coverage in bullet form.
I keep a livejournal as something of a disambiguation resource -- what did I do when
I haven't reconciled my days off with accounting since 08/2004
As of 8/2005, I get 20 days off a year
...plus 8 floating holidays (not bankable)
I haven't really taken a day off this year
I'm leaving for a job with half as many days off
I took a paid month off once and I would do it again
20 days a year is a month off. Floating holidays are gravy.
Instead of leaving CMU before my surgery, I think I'm going to take a vacation for my surgery and recovery. I will come back to work a day or two before I go to Switch.
I have benefits for the rest of the month of my termination date.
...I asked HR about it.
