If you’re on the bench and give your 2 weeks notice, is it more likely you’ll work the 2 weeks or just be told to leave that day?

Told to leave that day.

Depends. If you’re staff, less likely

IME ask to leave that day and they will agree to pay you for your standard notice period, and then pay out your vacation on top

Wait until after the first of a new month...I believe your benefits (especially health) at minimum carry over to the end of the month at which point you will have to go with Cobra or another insurer... That way if they walk you out you’re health is at least covered with nothing out of pocket...

This is true. When I left my last gig my last day was the 5th. I put in my notice 2 weeks before that and got paid to do nothing on the bench, then got paid for vacay which was great

Likely same day because of your level

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

My law firm has the same business development expectations for attorneys based in big markets, such as New York or Los Angeles, as they do for attorneys in smaller markets where it is far more difficult to develop business, such as New Orleans and Louisville.
