I’ll be very busy (~65 hrs a week all of Feb) so that would put my teams in bad place if they let me go right away. I personally wouldn’t mind because i won’t be that busy at the new place and also I’ll start accruing PTO earlier - i won’t be getting a payout here at EY since e have unlimited pto. I wonder if they’ll still let people go ASAP in the middle of busy season

if ur going to another big 4 ur done on the day u tell them so wait til ur nearing the end of feb to tell

Or that’s how I’ll get a break before starting at the new job!
