Yesterday, I celebrated my 11th anniversary of working at UMD. Eleven years! How can that be?
Last year, I shared the many reasons why I love my job, institution, and people I work with. All of those reasons still hold true. And regarding my weeks of accrued sick and annual leave over 11 years, I can't wait, Lord willing, to finally cash in on this benefit beginning September 12th. Having ample sick and vacation time left in the bank after taking an extended maternity leave is an added bonus.
Yes, there are definite perks to longevity at one institution.
