Did you wait for your background check to be completed before giving your notice? What about the final step of contacting the current employer? I have been emailing the team regularly to find out the status so I can give my notice and take some time off
For the first two years at PwC do you get 10/month of vacation? Then starting your third year do you accrue 15/month?
Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.

How should I view bonus range in an offer - if I was told a range of 10%-30% per year by the recruiter should I take that as fact, or is it realistically 5%-20%?
I’ve been totally buried in work for the last 2.5ish months and it’s taken a toll on me. I’m feeling very burned out, to the point where my productivity has tapered off over the past two weeks and I’m no longer able to bill the hours I want. I genuinely try, but at a certain point each day (usually around 6.5 hours) I just feel like I can’t do it anymore. My family is urging me to take PTO to recharge, but I’m too scared about losing more hours to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?
My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on.

Thoughts on potential exit to Mid-Cap Cybersecurity company for a product data analyst job vs. privacy program manager at Facebook. Both jobs have very similar salaries but Facebook has sightly better benefits.

For reference, have worked at Deloitte for 2.5yrs in the Cloud Sec space (more strategy than tech)
