I guess my stomach was like “let’s wait until she finds a safe work environment and then get sick.”

I have a possible opportunity at Protiviti. Coming from big4 and wondering if Protiviti has fairly similar perks. I’ve read the 2022 benefits guide and it gave a oddly low PTO count of 16 days. Is this true and what about a holiday disconnect in the December time period? Are there any other hidden perks that are awesome? Already heard WLB is better and the culture, but I feel like I’ve gotta find that out first hand. Protiviti

Need some thoughts. Received an offer from a well established company as a manager role doing HR analytics, and accepted the offer a week ago. A day ago received another offer from pwc. The salaries are the same, except I receive more vacation from the other company. Today I received an increase in the pwc offer (base rate) and I’m unsure what to do. Apart of me feels it isn’t right for me to entertain another offer when I just accepted one…What do you guys think? Thoughts on HR consulting @pwc?

I bought a laptop from a seller who is a friend of a good friend and my bf refused to accompany me. He came with me the night before to the ATM to get cash, but even that I felt like I had to convince him to come. I felt safe meeting with the seller because it was my good friend’s good friend. But I would have liked my bf to come in case someone tried to rob me as I walked back to my car. He refused because he was sure I’d be safe meeting with a friend of a friend. Am I wrong for being so upset?
