Can you go into negative PTO at KPMG? Also is it a bad look to take a week off after one month? Already made vacation plans and might be starting at KPMG soon 😅

Not sure about KPMG, but I took off a week, 3 weeks in because of thanksgiving travel I already had prior to the offer. I let the hiring manager know and the team know and neither has a problem. I think it’s more common than you’d think since people tend to plan vacation a few months in adv.

As long as you preface that you have a preplanned vacation that happens to be scheduled a month after the start date, unless you’re already allocated to a critical project, your hiring manager shouldn’t have a problem

Yes, you can go negative. Just be honest with the hiring team.

You definitely should’ve let the hiring team know about this when you signed your offer.

Haven’t signed my offer yet, I’ll let the hiring team know before I do!

Not a problem, but be upfront with everyone starting with the recruiting team.

It’s totally fine - just let everyone know before you start! I did this because the KPMG hiring timeline was all over the place and had no idea of knowing when I was going to start :)
