Epsilon has been fantastic. They've respected the time off that you need and request

How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays.

Plus new job offers WAY less PTO (VP thought it was 10 days to start vs my current 25, but am currently waiting for formal offer from HR).
