Why do clients push announcements right before the holiday. Then question why media isn’t getting back to you. #wtf

Fall vacation ideas. Wife is pregnant so we’d prefer a laid back trip. We live in Soflo so no beaches. Some place where we can experience fall I suppose w/o the general hiking/trekking sort of physical activities. Originally we were planning northern Italy but nipped that idea due to COVID concerns.

A few months ago I asked the question about using travel smart routers to host a VPN to disguise your location. The purpose of this is to have a working vacation in a foreign country, without telling work about it. My work computer has restricted access so I cannot install a VPN service on the computer without help from IT. My work around is a smart router that can directly host a VPN. Now I am in Cabo with a VPN to the US. I’ve included some details in a comment below. AMA

Can any one share the lti holiday calendar for this year

Have an interesting be possible offer. The salary "might" be on the low end of my desire number, the health benefits won't start right away; takes 60 days then they begin on the first of the month following the 60 days. 401k contributions don't start until 6 months. PTO is only 10 days plus a number of company holidays.

Other than more base salary, are the things negotiable, like more PTO? What about also basking for compensation to cover Cobra payments during the transition phase?

How much PTO have you gotten away with under an unlimited policy? Is five weeks too much?

I bounced from consulting last year, but very much hate my current role. The company is well known and large, but not very transparent or concerned about treating employees well. I have a vacation planned for end of August, but I got an offer this week. PTO is not paid out and I can't quit and use vacation to extend my 2 week notice.

Thoughts on how to handle? Give 1 week notice. Give notice 1 week before vacation and offer to work 1 week after vacation. Don't want to lose my 7 PTO days.

Relatedly, is it reasonable to not work during PTO in this case? Context: traveling & meeting ppl for first time in many years, want to maximize time w/ them.
