My firm is offering everyone not hired in the last 1.5 years the option to leave, with an OK-ish pay out. I am just over that threshold, hence my option is in the money.
I wouldn’t normally consider leaving a job without securing the next one, but I am so tempted: I am sitting for level III in June, so taking the option would offer the luxury to study full time while still getting paid.
Would leaving a job for this reason and under these (mitigating?) circumstances… be viewed as acceptable or weak? I hear that sabbaticals are gaining acceptance in the marketplace (rather than academia only). Do you see that? Or am I setting myself up for career suicide?
