D1, I worked at KPMG as a staff and got 25 pto days...

25 days PTO, great medical and when I got sick a week and a half into my first year the first thing I was told was to sign up for their insurance so I could get disability. A year and a half later (spent 18 months on med leave) I still have my job, they transferred me offices so I can be near family and they've made accommodations like starting at 20 hours a week for 1 month, then 30 for one month, then 40 for 1 month before being expected to work more, despite being on a busy season client. My PML checks in regularly with me to make sure everything is on track and going well.

It depends on what you define as “great.” Coming from a smaller firm prior to KPMG, I found the insurance plans and 401k matching to be lacking. I think big4 in general doesn’t provide the best benefits. Other firm offers were in line with okay KPMG benefits

like

Pwc has great PTO. Health insurance is just alright

Deloitte has 5 weeks PTO, when I got an offer from KPMG, EY, and PWC they all only gave 3 weeks

EY has 16 weeks of fully paid parental leave for primary care givers...not sure how that stacks up against other B4 but I’m assuming it’s on par

Don’t be penny wise and pound foolish

I’m got the offer for audit, would it be different?

I’m in audit at KPMG and have 25 days

Idk bout pwc but I know Deloitte KPMG and EY all get 25 PTO I believe. At least in the dc/va area

PwC has vacation 15 days initially then it goes up to 22 after a year maybe? Don’t quote me on when it increases. Unlimited sick days for yourself and family members (aka kids, spouses, etc)

Benefits assistance, please! Context: 25F, unmarried, no dependents & no parents 1) Firm provides AD&D of $20k at no cost. Can purchase voluntary AD&D up to $500,000 for $3.50/pp. 2) Group LTD 60% replacement of first $150,000 of earnings for $4.57/pp. Inexpensive I know, but is this worth it for me? Or are these future considerations?
