Need some advice! I'm a recent PhD grad (30 yo) in STEM, and just got some offers from different companies. Particularly, two of them are interesting to me. 1) from a Energy Market Company in Pennsylvania as an Operations Research Scientist, 95k + 15% bonus + very good benefits and generous PTO. It's a very chill job (9-5) with good people but limited opportunity to growth. 2) from a consulting company in NYC as a data science consultant, 130k + 10k signing bonus. Which one you choose? why?

I’m being made to work about 50h of client work even while taking PTO once a week. PPMD just keeps putting me on additional small projects that require about 5-10h/week even though he knows I’m fully stretched between a full time and part time project taking 45h+ which is why I’m taking 1day/week off. I feel imma get burnt out soon and start looking elsewhere. Anybody going though this? ‘Tis the impact of high turnover & lack of understanding of boundaries + Team can’t find new candidates

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application? Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?
