We got 80 extra PTO hours for anything related to COVID: taking care of parents, home schooling kids, whatever. If you were diagnosed with COVID, you’d use the above mentioned COVID hours, or short-term disability for an extended convalescence. Firm has been very proactive about this - was good to see.

Good to hear

We get three extra weeks paid sick leave if we contract it or have to care for a family member who does (large tech firm)

We have unlimited sick days - so they are following that and people really aren’t abusing it.

Very generous! Good to hear

We get 80 hours of paid leave if COVID positive. I want to say there is a provision for getting that same time if you’re taking care of a child or dependent relative, but I can’t say with absolute certainty. Others may be able to confirm dependent care.

Do they actually require you to submit results of a positive test? Curious how especially if access to testing is limited, privacy, etc

I am scared to take a medical leave of absence for depression / burnout even though I know and my therapist agrees it would be the best thing for me to do right now. I feel like I will be removed from my current team and I will be marked in the office as “weak” (even though I was rated 2 and then 1 for PYs) and it will ruin my chances of being promoted to senior next July. Are my fears valid? Will this medical LOA derail my career progression? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?
