I know the feeling. I really like the company as a whole but in also very frustrated with the lack of respect for personal time

Id say its partly your fault too. By doing what you did, you set an expectation with the team that you'll be willing to work on your PTO as well. When you're on a PTO, you're off everything! Even if the whole project goes down. It's really looked down upon in my team if you're working on a PTO

Easy to say EY. Was at D for a while, the culture there doesn’t respect pto and it’s an unwritten rule that you engage. Kpmg is the complete opposite which is shocking to me

Notice etiquete question. If you give your 2 weeks’ notice on a Monday, is your last day a Monday (2 weeks later) or can it be the previous Friday? Does your answer change depending on the time (morning/ afternoon) notice is given? If I don’t want to potentially burn any bridges, should I just have my notice period end on a Monday and just take that day out of my scheduled vacation before starting my next job? First time giving notice - would be interested in hearing what others have done.

How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays.

The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
