I agree that BDO is cheap many regards, but I fail to see how this is one of those ways. Cheap would be to say you get Thursday off only...and believe me, there are companies out there that do this. I don't have any family, friends, or colleagues that I know of that were given the whole week off by their company. Most people just bridged it with PTO.

This isn’t grade school, very few companies in the planet give blanket weeks off around holidays. Spring and winter breaks ended when you graduated. This isn’t unique to public accounting, it’s called being an adult. Many firms now have moved to an open pto system. Which means, get your work done and take off as much as you want around a holiday.

I mean, even new associates can take PTO w approval. You just draw negative on your future accrual. But 100% OP is new to the business world and doesn't get it. Probably will see another post in a few months wondering why we don't give the week of spring break off.

I took PTO M-W so I can get the week off. I haven’t worked for a PA firm that gives you the week off as part of their holiday schedule, but if there is a firm that does that and it’s important to you, maybe you should see if they have openings. Market is on fire right now!!!

I took the following week off. 11 days off with 5 days of PTO used.

PwC did the same thing

Same

We get 2 days off at my small firm. But we get at least a week paid at the end of the year without having to take PTO, on top of a week after 4/15 and 10/15

You hiring?

I booked PTO starting today through next Friday. My firm is a regional one and my office in particular is very family oriented so it’s kinda of expected for several staff, managers, and partners to take Thanksgiving week off.

If you’re not busy why don’t you use your PTO?

B/c it's always staff's fault when the workflow is uneven and understaffed clients don't timely reply or provide requested data, so staff has to use up their precious PTO while waiting!

I feel like this is normal, which firms give the whole week? KPMG is the same just the two days, I'm using some PTO.

You know you could use your “floating holiday” and PTO I dont think BDO is cheap but fair

I have stepped into December with total apathy towards work. Just came back from vacation so I don’t feel like I need to rest. Just no desire at all to do anything and I can’t find the motivation. I am also in the process of looking for other job opportunities but nothing seems to excite me. Has anyone ever felt the same way? Maybe it’s just a period that will pass on its own? Any advice will be appreciated🙏

How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
