My fiancé’s family has a vacation planned at the end of June in Florida (small beach town about 45 mins from PCB). We’d be flying from California if we decide to attend. His family doesn’t seem concerned (ugh whole other story) and the “rules” in Florida are relatively relaxed now (restaurants open etc). I want to go for sanity reasons, but feel like it seems foolish too. What would y’all do? Just wait and see?
Which agency offers the most time off?

I’m on PTO doing some final studying for my GMAT in 2 days but my PPMD is pinging me to help on something. I told him about this PTO well in advance (several months ago), but I don’t want to disclose that I’m taking the GMAT to him which is why I will not be doing work. What should I do?
BDO PTO Upon Leaving: Does BDO compensate you for your unused PTO when you quit? I'm in Georgia and it isn't required by state law, but I wasn't sure if there was a firm-wide rule in place.
I recently received an offer from a new firm. I informed my managing partner ab it. He offered me slightly more $ to stay but still didn’t even come close to what I’d be making. I then gave him my 2 weeks notice and accepted the offer with the new firm.￼ All amicable. I had 2 vacation days scheduled, which the firm knew about for months and happened to fall within my last 2 weeks. While out last week, they then told me to not worry ab coming back in and that I am terminated. Thoughts on this?

What would be a reasonable total comp to exit into medtech or health tech corporate strategy role at senior Manager level? The next level above is Director.
