KPMGs is pretty good honestly. 4 weeks pto (5 when you hit MD I believe), plus 2 weeks of firm shutdown, you can also take a sabatical at 20% of pay for up to 6 months, no limit, can take it multiple times, and you only have to be employed for 3 months before you are eligible

If its similar to pwc its 1 week between Christmas and New Year and 1 week for the Independence Day week.

Anyone can have a "policy". Your question should be about actual usage. For example, at my last firm it was 3 weeks a year "policy" but actually got to use 0 along with required to work many holidays.

You should tell us which firm this is so we know not to go there. That’s absolutely awful.

If work is not your top priority and you don’t worry too much about getting a mediocre rating and raise, go to EY. I take two Fridays off every month, and take one Monday off every month too.

Also interested. And in PA which firm?
