My company is in the tech industry in Houston, TX. 5 days in office. Sick time and PTO are not accrued and are unlimited. I am currently at 65k. Anyone with similar position in Texas?

She mainly wants relocation and flexible PTO since she will have to go and move from Maryland to Delaware.

Approximately 60-70hrs a week. No time for vacation, always working over weekends, no holiday break (there’s no back up).
I’m still rated as junior - low level designer ;)

Few recruiters reached out to me and have been offering a hefty salary. Similar situation last year was different. I.e I see salary difference of 30 to 40% in base salary range. I am too excited to take the offer’s, but also scared that is it just momentarily and when market stabilizes they would fire folks???? The companies reaching out last year and this year are different ; none of them are big tech companies.
