I just hit the three year mark at my job. I never thought I’d make it through three years there, but by some magic, I did. On my 3 year anniversary at the agency, I got the call that I got the transfer (within the department ) that I had applied for, which makes my job a hundred times better.
One of the perks to hitting the 3 year mark is that I now get more vacation time. Seven more days, to be exact. I can’t tell you how exciting that is. I don’t take a lot of big trips, mostly little weekend trips here and there, but my whole family lives halfway across the country. A lot of my vacation time is spent with them. So getting an extra seven days is awesome. I can spend time with my family and take trips for myself and not feel guilty about it.
Definitely better than a raise.
