How much time are companies giving you all to consider offers these days? Some interviews lined up, no options yet, but not sure what to expect. So trying to plan.

They should offer you at least a week otherwise I don’t take the offer. If you’re making me choose a life decision is 48 hours then I know it’s fishy - to me it means you’re pressuring you so you say yes snd can’t get out. Otherwise if a company believes you’ll take an offer based on how good the company is then they want you to make that decision with full confidence

A couple of weeks tops.

Honestly better than what I've heard. I've seen 2-3 days for some people and that can't be the norm, right? I thought that it's gotta be reasonable to ask for up to 2 weeks?

Especially as long as they make you wait to receive an offer.

Guidehouse just gave me 3 business days — a Thursday to a Monday.

I had an offer that gave like 3 business days to decide. I asked for 2 weeks to decide and got it. Point being, especially in this market a lot of firms default is short but usually there is flexibility.
