I want my bonus at the end of November. Plus if you take PTO instead of payout, I still get health coverage, stock purchase plan, 401(k) contribution, etc

Do you get paid out on unused PTO? If yes the latter might be a better option as you won’t burn too many bridges while getting time off & making money

Do you think they’d care if they were going to fire you?

Why not give your notice, take 1-2 months off (unpaid) then collect your PTO payout check to cover the 1-2 months?

Won’t you only have 240 hours come Sept. 1?

Yup- you loose everything over 240 tomorrow (unless I’m California you will get paid out).

I think it is ok to take the two months and give your notice during that period. If you yolo and take two months off and they can’t see that you’re about to jump ship, then that is on them 😂

Middle of an extended PTO period* sorry

The company? No. But the people I work with in my practice, yes.

Accenture is a fine place to be if you’re effectively networked. You don’t want to burn bridges going elsewhere. I want the option of coming back in the future.

I disagree, and I personally don’t think you’d be burning bridges.

Option 2

How do you have that much

You’ll be on the bench coming back from a month or two month of PTO. Take the two months off.

Actually I’m not I said don’t ask about that

Okay.

Hi, I have an offer from GlobalLogic for Senior QE Manager. They are offering ₹36 lpa fixed + ₹4 lpa bonus (which is paid out 100%) = approx ₹40.5 lpa. I have my HR round scheduled with Morgan Stanley this week for Vice President QA position (designation is equivalent to Senior QA Manager). I'm thinking of quoting ₹43 lpa base (comes to approx. ₹47 lpa including PF etc.). Would this be a reasonable ask? Pls comment. YOE 17 in Quality Engineering (Java/Selenium/Test Management). Thanks.

Need some advice. Got a verbal offer from MITRE for $162,500 and 10k signing bonus (their retirement matching is insane as well). From my contact who referred me, they said for my experience anywhere from 140-155k would be good (11 YOE and masters degree). Naturally, a $162,500 offer seems great when I originally gave a 150-170k spread of salary expectations. Thoughts? Def don’t want to come across greedy or ungrateful when it sounds like they gave a fair offer.
