Do any large firms offer comp time ? I just left a firm with comp time for one that offers only 18 days time off.

25 days at KPMG. I think it's the same at Deloitte and PwC. 15 days pto, 3 personal and unlimited sick at EY. Unlimited PTO at GT but we all know what it means.

"Only" 18 days?

I think earned vacation- and if that's the case your 18 days is under market

I think comp time is more for smaller and mid sized firms. Larger firms would just offer generous PTO.

Pay difference of about 18,000. We were tax heavy. Most people would reduce their schedules to 3 or 4 days a week for the entire year, but 3 of my buddies took 6 weeks off to go to Europe. Most can't do that there since we do tax and audit both.

I left a bank that gave 7, and my last firm gave 12 (comp time included in that). Had to move to this firm since I just moved across the country and needed a job ASAP.

7 and 12 weeks, I should say.

What's comp time?

Any overtime is put into your PTO balance to be used during slow season.

12 weeks of vacation plus comp time 😳?

EY1 no that's with my comp time. And KPMG thanks for the info. What do you all get? I am in Orlando, and there are lots of firms here. I enjoy the high pay of the large firm I work for, just hate the benefits.

Which firm in Orlando?

18 days and unlimited sick days that's what we get. So your 60 days off at your old firm just made my jaw dropped. How much pay difference we are talking about?
