How bad does it look leaving a firm after less than a year? Could possibly be looking to make a move with about 8 months tenure at current firm?

As long as you can spin it so it’s a one off event (I.e. stay at your next job for over a year or have been at a previous job for more than a year) it’s fine. Even then the main concern is that future employers may worry you will leave before they recover what they invest in you, again if you can frame it to show that you are looking for growth opportunities which the new job hosts it shouldn’t matter too much. I left a job after 6 months and no one batted an eye at the next job.

I would argue that the reason for moving and if this is a trend, is more important than a one-off short stint. Companies are generally looking to hire someone for the long term so if your justification for moving aligns to that then you should be good.

Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
