Hi. Please for the love of god stop saying something “should only take x hours”. It never does! Ever! You guys suck at forecasting work, and for every additional one of you on the thread, add 30% to the runway.

Need some advice. I just accepted a new position that starts later this summer at the beginning of July. Earlier this year I was approved for 2 weeks PTO at the end of June/early July (getting married). Where I'm at now they do not have unlimited PTO, so there is nothing they owe me when I leave. What would be the best way to handle putting in my 2 weeks notice if I want to try and still get paid my PTO before I leave?
Please help me in determining the hike %age comparing these 2. Both have different amount incentives and shift payout included , so i am really confused how to calculate.

Is consulting not for me?
Moved recently into consulting and lately I've frequently been feeling anxious and upset and this has escalated in a period of downtime when we don't have many jobs on and many are on the bench. I've mostly been on the bench for about 2 ish months now and my prior engagement was an 8 month project with a distant, hands off manager where I frequently felt lost, misguided and unsupported as a new consultant (previously doing well as a big 4 senior in audit) (see below)

Has anyone broken a lease before moving in? I recently found out that my roommate intends to have her coworkers over regularly (yes, in the middle of a pandemic). I care for my elderly parents and don’t want to take this risk. We were lucky to lock down a good rate ($1900 per month) and prices have gone up $300 since then. I’m hoping this entices the landlord to let me go with minimal penalty

Serious question. As equity, does it concern you employing individuals that live paycheck to paycheck? People that would do anything to keep their job first and foremost where improving returns to equity is a very distant priority.
