in reply to I've had my current job for

One of the nice things about staying at the same place (if you can find the right place) is that some things start to "pile up". Like for me, I've been with the same large corporation for just over 20 years (I know, a significant number of monks were not even born when I started here). So, I am now up to 5 weeks of paid vacation every year! Add to that about 8 holidays, plus 4 weeks of sick leave, and 2 weeks of personal time...

    Hmmm. That brings you up to the starting point if you were a French worker.
    Except for the bit about their 35 hour work week being STRICTLY enforced.
    And the other part about unpaid overtime being strictly illegal, and the max. overtime being 8 hours per week
    that's a 42 hour work week.

    But then again you'd have to work with the French, which is a chore in itself.
    From Switzerland, ...

      The only problem is if you actually want to work more you can't. A friend of my from the Netherlands did her graduate work in the US. She worked as long as was necessary to get her work done on time. She is now doing her postdoc/assistant professorship at a univeristy near Utrect. Sometimes she can't stand the way she is essentially prevented from working late if she is on a roll. Her coworkers say that she's been corrupted :) Still, she says its worth it... Even with the chronic housing shortage and german tourists.
