Is it true EY has to take 3 days of PTO for this week off?

The summer holiday is fairly new for EY. I think it started 3 summers ago because we made some best companies list 20 years in a row, but now they’ve done this every summer since.

The winter holiday is also new for EY, but it’s very common across many industries. Most companies shut down between Christmas and New Years, but some companies have just recently caught onto this

I think the summer week off is great in theory but it’s easier to shutdown over the holidays when your clients are also mostly off

Hello,

I am a newly hired cross Industry PDM employee and with the US federal reserve set to raise interest rates and slow down the economy, I had a question regarding layoffs. I assume layoffs are coming and I had a question regarding PDM employees during these. Are they usually the first to go since they are easier to get rid of? Or are they kept because they have less overhead and overall cheaper? I want to plan for my financial future but not sure how Deloitte usually handles PDM employees

Is it normal for all EY GDS folks like from Consultants to Manager & all staffs to remain "busy" in their teams however not seeming to do really anything at all!?

Is this the norm or has been setup somehow to show work!? I'm literally confused. Either all are red busy or just away or else OOO. Lol?

POV: 2 and s half months into a new job: position internal sales support. Request of SM to find all potential customers in 2 main areas of sales and send them the information of companies name as well as contact name and sort the info from most important company to least, all from scratch.
The SM knows I am new to the industry and have no previous experience in it.
Is this something normal to ask to have done? Is it normal to give a few days to hand in the requested information?
Thanks!
