I’m not sure you can negotiate when being let go. 2 weeks per calendar year of service seems to be pretty standard

You have very little power to negotiate severance unless your ' goodwill' is particularly important (you know where the bodies are buried )

Any pen testing or red teaming jobs (cleared or commercial)? I have some practice in HTB or THM but I don’t have OSCP or GPEN. I’d think I could find a role easily especially since Deloitte has been hiring pen testers that had no certs or experience. If they are hiring people with little experience I think would have a chance with another firm or company. I’d prefer a cleared role to keep my TS clearance but I’m open to anything that pays good and will help train me and grow my experience!
