Any recommendations on keto-friendly pre-workout supplements? I know perfect keto makes one but it’s a bit pricey. I used to use C4 which apparently doesn’t have any carbs, so I should be good right?

My friend received his EY GDS offer letter today - Needed a few clarifications if someone has some time

1. There isn't any mention of variable in the offer letter. Is that common in EY GDS?

2. They have given him the designation of Sr. Security Consultant 1 ( Rank 42). Want to check if that's okay for someone with 7 years of experience.

3. What's the appraisal cycle at EY GDS? Will he be eligible for bonus or hikes if he joins in Nov,21

I have two offers - one is from an AM 200 and the other is from a boutique. The larger firms offer is 40k more (plus a signing bonus plus a significant annual bonus if you hit your billable requirement) than the boutiques offer. I’m leaning towards the boutique but I don’t want to leave money on the table. Is it worth trying to negotiate the offer to see if they can close the gap slightly with the larger offer?

Got offer as IT IA manager (at retailer) that I’ve accepted for mid July. Base pay will be 120k, curent salary is 99k (7.5 yoe). comes with 10k sign on bonus, a yearly 12.5% bonus if compny meets target, up to 25%. TC could be up to 150k, working 40~45hrs. Having 2nd thoughts about leaving and company trying to retain me with an option to move to cyber (and a retention bonus, TBD) Would asking for a higher base pay rather than bonus be an option? Is it bad to decline an offer after accepting?
