As an unmarried employee, I do not. However, most Managing Partners (at least mine)!are pretty understanding from what I’ve heard

I’m fairly sure it’s 2 weeks off. Being a female with no kids, I’m not 100% confident.

EY is 16 weeks 😉

When I was a staff at BKD in the early 2000’s, went to the office holiday party with my very pregnant wife. When I introduced her to the OMP he said to her “I hope you’re self sufficient” implying there was not going to be much in the way of time off for me after the pending birth of our first child during my upcoming 3rd busy season. I’m hoping they’ve gotten more humane since then!

Hey partner, just curious, I’m entertaining an offer right now. I’m an A2. Is it too soon to be making this kind of switch from Big4? If I end up missing the Big4 environment is it easy to make a switch from BKD?

What should I do first (max 401k, Roth, etc) and what would you do in my fortunate situation?

Objective answers only:
Is living in NYC worth the extra cost, when compared to NJ/Hoboken area?

Things to consider:
- I'll work in NYC after my MBA
- I have high fixed expenses (eg. student loans, child support)
- 35 yo, single and want to meet people
- Between city-level income tax and the atrocious CoL (overpriced rents), I estimate that living in NYC will cost $15k-$20k/yr more than NJ

Now, objectively speaking: is it worth it?

Please no "NJ sux" type of answers.
