EY expects 15% overtime from their employees for the year, yet don't pay overtime, hmm. *Talk about the tone at the top*

You're salaried, there's no such thing as "overtime", there is just work. They expect a certain # of billable hours in exchange for the salary they give you. If the billable hour expectations were lowered by 15%, the salary would also be lowered to match the level of work performed...

The entire concept of "overtime" is based on government regulations that protect certain classes of workers to ensure they receive additional pay/benefits for working "overtime". If you're an exempt employee (which everyone on here is) then there is no "overtime".

You're an idiot. Anything over 40 hours is overtime despite whether or not our salary is reflective of the overtime

You are in B4 and bitch about 300 hours of OT...just quit now, seriously. What did you expect??? Idiot.

^I also think that a lot of new hires are really discounting the intangible value of the experience gained. If you spend 3 years in B4 audit, you can gain experience in SOX 404, various technical accounting areas, SEC reporting, etc... This is far and above the experience you would gain going to industry straight out of college. This absolutely has value, even though it's not in the form of $$$.

I'm not sure what you're complaining about. You're paid for your hours worked. If the hours decrease your pay would also decrease.

We're exempt employees, for better or worse they aren't legally obligated to pay us extra for that time. You might not be happy about it, but they don't hide this fact. Often it's the nature of professional service firms, work is cyclical and you have to work when it's required.

like

^exactly. The firm is very up front about it and pays you accordingly. I don't see many new hires crying about making $60K out of school and making a solid $10k - $15k premium vs comparable 9-5 business jobs.

@OP you weren't misled. The firms are very transparent about the hours, so what exactly are you complaining about? You accepted the offer, knowing what the workload was. Unfortunately that's life, the vast majority do well paying jobs require more than 40 hours of work. There are plenty of jobs out there that have 40 hour work weeks. Why don't you go get one of those?

There's always been an implicit agreement that lower level employees will put up with the hours and salary for the ability to put the name brand on their resume and they work they learn during their tenure. It's still that way, I think at times it slowly has changed, but sometimes an industry takes a step back when the belt tightens in the economy.

Looking to pivot out of teaching (at the college level) after 15 years. I’m ABD and finishing my dissertation this year but feel vastly under-qualified for positions as they are listed despite being exceptionally talented in many areas. How does one translate teaching, research, and professional skills across fields when all of one’s eggs are in one basket, so to speak? It feels too close to lying to turn, for example, classroom management into “training and management” as advised by friends…
