Only a two day weekend

For several years NJIT gave all employees Fridays off until the third week in August.  The university saves $200,000/year in energy costs by closing on Fridays.  Things were very slow today in the library and on campus in general.  I guess there are certain offices like the registrar, financial aid, admissions and graduate studies that are getting busy with classes starting on September 2nd.  So I will have to get used to two day weekends again.  Working in academia does have its perks with 20 vacation days, 3 personal days, and the week off between Christmas and New Years.  How could I go back to a corporation and get only 2 weeks a year vacation.
