I have received an offer (+40% base) from another big 4 firm. Do they have to pay out the two weeks after I give my notice if they ask me to hand in my laptop? What if the start date is 4 weeks out?

OP I just did this and yes, they asked me to leave quickly (gave notice on Wed turned in assets in Friday). They made it clear my two weeks + vacation would be paid out in the next two pay cycles. New offer didn't start until Jan but I wanted the month long vacay wooo

They said I'd keep my coverage through the end of the month

We are at will in the us. They can terminate immediately. They will do that usually if you are in the bench. Not sure if they pay out the 2 weeks

OP- Do let us know how it works out. And 40% raise is impressive. Did you also get a rank jump?

I did not get a rank jump and would be making a lateral move at manager. (Which is almost preferable as will position me for another jump once getting sr mgr). I was honestly shocked by the offer

FYI they gave me until the end of the week to hand in my stuff and did not pay me for the second week. Benefits are through the end of the month

Wait two weeks to give your two weeks and you’ll keep getting paid till you start your new gig

They’ll pay your two weeks. If they terminate you immediately, you’re eligible for unemployment and there’s a legal risk to the company that they won’t want to take. So give notice two weeks from your preferred last day. If they show you the door immediately, they’ll pay you

Almost exactly same situation OP. New start date is over a month away and I'm not sure when to put in notice. Have you considered not telling them that you're going to a competitor?

OP - when you were asked salary expectations during phone screen, how did you reply to that question?

I told them exactly what it would take (20%) as I was not actively looking and did not want to waste my time or theirs if my number was too high. They somewhat laughed and said a range of 25-35% and then when the verbal offer came in it was 40%. TBH it was a little bizarre
