We got the option to take one day off this month (not that significant IMO since we already have unlimited PTO) and they’re mailing us sweatsuits lol. Pretty excited for those.

We closed at 12.

Hello folks, I am new to fishbowl and recently got an offer from Publicis Sapient for a senior associate. They are offering $136k with unlimited pto benefits. As I am from the industry and haven't heard about this company before, I would like some comments or thoughts about working for this company? How do they invest in their employees (like pay raise, promotions, etc)?

Stay at Deloitte as an M and try for SM promotion in 2023 or try to level up now at another firm? Current base is $185K with 12 YOE. M&A IT. I know M to SM moves across firms are tough. Assuming I can make the transition for argument’s sake, should I invest my free time in the holiday season into making the transition? Reasons for moving: Cut down M to SM timeline by a year or two, potentially increase my pay from $185K to the mid $200s.

Anyone have anything positive to say about unlimited PTO? Have you taken more than 3-4 weeks since the shift?

I hope everyone at EY will book vacation in November/December to use the accrued hours they EARNED. This PTO thing really is a shame, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the other B4 follow suit. The one thing we all have in common is leadership finding creative ways to screw over employees.

Hi! For people who have started with EY US recently, how long did it take you from signing the offer, completing background check, to transferring H1B visa?

Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!
