Need to quit before year end so I can cash out this PTO. Otherwise I lose and leave anyway. Anyone thinking the same?

Same boat

Lol it’s funny there is a decent amount of cash that can be left on the table because we don’t always get to use our PTO. I am currently in the the final round somewhere and have about 17k in PTO that would be cashed out.

I thought it carries over?
