I haven't taken a single vacation or sick day in over a year. I'll lateraling to another firm next month (pending conflicts). Would it be in poor taste schedule a vacation prior to giving my two weeks notice? I love my group and I don't want to burn bridges.

Personally I would take the vacation between the jobs. If you have accrued vacation time see if they can pay that out to you after you leave. I guess I would only do this if you have accrued vacation time that can’t be paid out.

Take the vacation if you won’t otherwise be paid out for it. If you’ll be paid out for it, take it between the two jobs.
