EY moms - I’m on leave now, I had my baby about 3 weeks ago. 😊 I was planning to tack on 4 weeks of PTO at the end of my leave (starting in January). Does the new PTO policy change this? My Counselor signed off on these dates and my CFL was Cced on my leave form. I live in CA and will use 8 weeks of PFL at the end of my PTO. Any insights? Thanks!
Which city is a good place to be if traveling solo? I have some PTO coming up and have no clue what to do! I think I want to go to a new place and experience it (safely of course)
Love this work -life balance. Work from home all week. Barely had work to do. Literally no work today. This is pretty much PTO without actually using it.
How many PTO days do you get and how long have you been at your company? I get 20 days PTO and up to 10 paid sick days. Been here 1 year
What's the best way to take advantage of DTO? Are there any benefits that you don't get from accrued PTO?
Planning to leave the firm early January. My firm has 1 week of “holiday” from 12/24 - 1/1 so everyone will be out of office. Is giving my 2 week notice on 12/21 (so 1/4 is my last day of work) sufficient for the team / HR?
My wife and I are US citizens. If in a few yrs we plan it so my wife has our child while on vacation in Canada does the child get duel citizenship
Rising 2nd year here... What’s your policy on holiday gifts? I’m definitely planning on getting a nice gift for my assistant (thinking a good bottle of wine and some $) but do you give gifts to other people you work with/for? Partners? Other associates? Or is that weird?
I have a week of PTO planned starting next Monday but also want to submit my 2 weeks notice this Friday. Should I wait till I get back? Should I just cancel the PTO and wait the 2 weeks for a break?
What’s been your most impressive/successful salary negotiation when you’ve received an offer? Did you manage to get way more PTO or other perks?
Has anyone experienced team members getting upset at them for not taking time off? Pretend everyone involved is a high performer and are all equally guilty of not taking breaks due to personality, not a lack of team support.
Any advice for someone experiencing burnout? ~2 YOE so first time in this situation. Really struggling and not sure what to do. 🙁 Taking extended time off is probably not an option due to project responsibilities.
A little sad that I don’t have anywhere to go for the holidays coming up. 😔 Family lives abroad and I’m unable to visit due to COVID restrictions. All my friends moved out of this city and are back home. My roommates are going back home for over a month. What good are my PTO days if I have no one to spend them with...
New hire here - what's the requirement for using a PTO day? Can you just use it and announce you need it the day before with no questions asked ?
TX folks: when you leave EY prior to this unlimited vacation stuff.. do you get paid out unused vacation? Please only comment if you have experience.

Baby is 4 weeks old, is up every 1.5 hour and Eats every two hours. With feeding , burping, rocking back to sleep and then pumping cleaning bottles etc. I barely get an hour sleep at night..
JDs/lawyers who have left Big 4, how did you go about your job search? Everyone is hiring in my field (international tax) now, but jobs in industry seem to be almost exclusively compliance-focused.
Purchased a commuter ticket for this month but haven’t used it after the first week of March. Anyone on a similar boat that managed to get a refund? I used Chase Sapphire Reserve to purchase it FWIW
Finding family offices - does anyone have a good source (free or purchased) for a database of family offices that make private equity investments?

My passport expires on 11 July 2021. I am planning to go to India and return before 10 Jan 2021. Technically, I will have 6 months and a few days valid on my passport. I am on H1B. Anyone feel it could be a challenge?
Is PE ops truly just the worst of both consulting and PE? Tough travel without the nice luxuries, lower pay than deals team, less clear trajectory, etc
Does anyone use E*TRADE? I’m trying to figure out how to buy the S&P 500 on that app but doesn’t seem to let me. Has anyone else had an issue with that through E*TRADE?
I hate Trump but I can't compromise my morals and vote for Biden and Kamala. There are just levels to this....
