Is it reasonable to ask for three weeks before joining a new company? I was thinking a two week notice and a week vacation to take a breath. What do you think ?

Absolutely, just tell the new company you have a month notice period and then take your time off.

Absolutely, it's reasonable! I've done it between my three different companies I've been at. It's nice to have that "extra vacation" time between to decompress from one gig to the next.

We’re an international company with generous PTO. In the UK, we have a PTO Lump Sum bank. In the US, we’re stuck on accrual due to risk of not being able to recoup @ termination. I take issue with this as it shows lack of employee trust and asks for under the table PTO deals between managers & employees.

What is your current policy and days allotted?

Hi all! 10 months into life out here and I’m looking for my next neighborhood to live in. I live in studio city now, and feel like I’m so far from the action and it’s suburb-ish and a bit too hipster for me. I like shops, parks, restaurants, places I feel safe walking and I’d generally like somewhere with a handle on the homelessness. Any recommendations for me? I work in a office near Woodland Hills one day a week, but I love to spend time in Hermosa and down in Long Beach. Thanks!
