Whew! Invaluable resource. No way could I bear the time, cost and research needed to do this on my own. Many thanks.

I'm surprised at the recommended 12 months of severance pay, and the other benefits that are extremely decadent compared to the average employee. This may match some of the standards in the corporate world, but when it comes to the public sphere and public money, I don't think we should be emulating those corporate practices.
