I considered it once. A couple of buddies switched from D and raved about the balance and friendly culture etc. They did a lot of staff aug roles and had much slower growth, like total 3-4 levels, making promotions difficult

I heard they don't have too many clients yet, just my 2 cents

I’ve accepted another position and planned on giving my two weeks notice later this month. Now, my firm has made the decision to lay people off and I am getting reassigned more work. My dilemma is, should I keep working and stick to my original plan, or should I give notice sooner so that the planned work can be dealt with accordingly? I don’t want to leave team members in a bind at the end of the Q. Conversely, this is a business decision and they wouldn’t hesitate to let me go if they saw fit.
