I would try to never give less than two weeks. And tbh even if I loved my boss and company I would only really give two weeks. It's what's expected. My thinking for never giving more is that my company would never hesitate to fire me on the spot, so I will give them the professional courtesy and nothing more.

I think 8-10 days is pretty standard. You don’t switch jobs everyday. If your new job starts the following Monday, give yourself a long weekend at the very least.

I did 2 weeks notice which was 10 business days

I've given three weeks (industry) because there was a big information silo that I needed to offload. I didn't have to but I really liked my team and it wasn't their fault management made some bad calls and didn't want to leave the team in a bad spot. But very much a personal decision.

Give the two weeks. More likely than not they’ll let you go that same day but still pay you the 2 weeks. I believe it depends if you’re going to another big4 but that’s what happened when I left PwC

Thanks for the advice friends. I figured 2 weeks is standard too. Thanks 🥲

Give just the notice time that is required. If two weeks, give two weeks (no more and no less). To leave in good terms, just put in a reasonable effort to leave your teams in the best position possible given the circumstances.

Pwc is 2 weeks standard. It is not mandatory to give 2 weeks. Per the handbook, pwc will honor 2 week notices. If you give less than 2 weeks, pwc reserves the right to terminate you early (same if you give more than 2 weeks). From a relationship standpoint, pwc prefers that you allow at least 2 weeks notice before leaving.

I gave 3 weeks- i liked the people and was putting in notice at a busy time.

When I gave my two weeks they had me leave early since I was going to a competitor. They still paid out though (standard practice from what I was told) so it was some nice PTO before starting the new job.

Is there anyone else out there who keeps getting ghosted by agencies after interviewing for jobs? I've been applying to jobs for months. I've constantly been changing my approach and techniques. Yet I keep getting ghosted by agencies - sometimes even after I reach out asking for an update. I guess I just gotta assume that my acceptance email got lost and move on. 😂

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?

Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...
