RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Poll: More Time Off, or a Raise? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

We read and hear about studies that purport to show how a growing number of people would prefer more time off than they would more pay and responsibility at work, since along with the latter usually comes more time spent at work and higher stress levels.

More pay means means increases that are greater than the rate of inflation (i.e., constant dollars).

Assuming that you currently earn enough to maintain a comfortable lifestyle, would you prefer to make more money or have more time off?

Greetings Kirt,

In Europe where I am currently working there are 30 days per year, and this is excluding public holidays. Europe has been always known in its socialiastic work mentality.

Of course that the choice between money and days off is an individual choice, but I would say that extra days off if possible to choose can't be quantized by means of mental benefit one can get from them!

I'm more than ready for more time off. I'd be glad to just work 40 hour weeks again. I'd like to know who among you is an engineer and only works 40 hours? I'd love to work for your company for a few years!

Seriously, who do you work for as an engineer with only 40 hours per week?

Here - here man. After my last airline trip to NYC, I need lots of time off. God help us all.
