Exit Read all the “notice” threads here, but no answer to my question. I accepted an offer from industry and need to put my notice. SM level, so requires 4 weeks. I have a vacation trip scheduled(...)

I would just give notice now and take the week. Firm gets their four weeks of transition time, you get your vacation, everyone wins

When I gave notice to EY, I also had a planned vacation. I went on that vacation and no one questioned me. Came back after vacation and finished out my notice period. Also I have found that EY rarely enforces the 30 day notice period

I agree. I left on very good terms and no one had any issue with my vacation. I was very upfront about it already being scheduled and how I’d work to make the transition smooth as possible

I was in this exact same position when I left EY as a SM. Just talk to you partner about the situation and you should be able to give notice now, take the vacation, and serve out the 30’day notice period. To be honest, 30 days is a looooong time so I was thankful for the vacation time to break it up. Once you know you are leaving, you won’t be starting new projects so everything is just wrapping up work you are currently doing and transitioning. That really doesn’t take a month.

I gave 4 week notice and two of them were PTO.....all about getting your stuff transitioned and tying up loose ends. Just be up front

Trip scheduled 1.5 weeks from now and cannot cancel now. Should I give my notice right after? That will mean I ll have to ask the new company to push my start 2 weeks later. Or should I put a notice now (5 weeks) and ask for that time off for a week. It has been in ARMs for a while now...

I would talk to your partner now and ask if you can take your trip during your notice period even though that’s generally not allowed. If you’re able to effectively transition all of your work during your remaining time, it shouldn’t be an issue. Worst case scenario is he/she says no, and you go talk to your future employer to see if they can move your start date.

Give your notice now so they can plan accordingly

A month’s notice does not mean you have to work everyday for that month. Just tell them now and tell them the truth, and take the vacation. If it were a 3 week vacation or something, that’s where it might start to get a bit dicey, but this should be fine.

Lots of firms won’t let you take vacation once you’ve given notice for insurance reasons

Any way you can work for both companies at the same time? Would be nice to get 2 executive level pay checks.

If 4 weeks is required, put notice now and take vacay. That still gives you 4 working weeks for transition.

I was in the same boat and ey decided to shorten my last date to the day before my vacation started. It was awesome

You have 60 days to accept COBRA and it's retroactive to when your coverage ended. So I generally don't elect it unless I need it (you incur expenses during the gap between your old job and when your new policy kicks in). The short gap should not put in violation of the individual mandate (that). Even if you do need medical services during that time, ask for the cash price - might be cheaper than paying for COBRA.

I went on a week’s leave during my notice and no one cared. Firm (EY) knew I had already booked the holiday before I resigned and my counsellor was chill about it. If the firm wants to keep you friendly (I moved to a client) and you have done a good job throughout your career no one should mind.

Came across the concept of “cash envelope stuffing” on youtube. Seems like a pretty good concept to avoid overspending on each category of expenses.

Where I allocate a set budgeted amount of money each month, to each bank account tagged for a specific category (groceries, vacation, emergency fund, etc). Is this something you have tried or have any ideas on how to go about it? Do you recommend this?
