Question to my peeps who left public accounting. Do you get paid your vacation and holiday balance when you quit?

Hi ex-McKinsey, When did you get the PTO payout after leaving the firm? McKinsey & Company
PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
If I left EY on 10/1 and didn't spend any vacation day in the fiscal year, will I get paid for that?
Just wrapped up a 10 day vacation - didn’t go too overboard on food and stayed pretty active but drank almost every day (not normal for me). Could this be why I’m so bloated and feeling large?
Anyone know Accenture’s PTO Policy?
EY - ladies, what to wear to the holiday party?!
I learned the other day that Deloitte counts PTO against your chargeability. Is this common with most firms? (ACN doesn't count PTO in chargeability calculations.)
Guys wanna plan some nice vacation during Christmas. Preferably on east coast and trying to avoid flights if possible. Me and my wife and some couple friends might join. Any suggestions?

Question for those who know the exit process at Deloitte: If you leave Deloitte (put in your two weeks) do they just pay you for your already earned unused PTO or do they ask you to take it instead of working your last two weeks?

Big law litigators - After losing an every issue raising in an MSJ, how long before you actually consider offering a settlement? Do you wait until the eve of trial? What benefit is there to wait until the eve of trial? Is there a better time of the year to offer settlement? End of fiscal year? Before holiday season? Any insight is appreciated.
One hell of a productive ‘vacation day’! Spent catching up on all the training requirements and pending client work! #YayPwC!
I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

What is the best platform to buy crypto? Only interested in the big guys (BTC, ETH, etc.) Have been hearing Coinbase Pro. Any downside of that? I also heard crypto.com because they allow credit card purchases. Any advice? Brand new to crypto investing. Plan to buy & hold rather than trade. Thanks!
