I'm on a project where I'm dealing with sensitive information. Wondering if they will make my end date sooner than two weeks and not get paid

They may terminate immediately. Just say you are taking a few weeks off to travel and them figure out what is next. Tell them you have a few offers pending....none of them are with big 4. They should leave you alone

OP can you update us on what happened in the end? Were you asked to leave immediately?

I’m on a small team where I happen to be the SME and the the only other person who knows how to do it is the VP.

Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting.
