EY is capping phone bill coverage to $60/mo and no longer paying for Platinum amex card fee of $395 a year. About $1,000 less in total benefits annually! Wtf!

Literally just saw this. Managers and above get $150/month for telecom right now, so I'm effectively having my pay cut by $1,080 per year. So annoying.

People are forgetting phone bills are paid after taxes. The true benefit is x1.25-35% in pretax income. Every FT in my practice has a wi-fi card for engagement teams, so our bills are often $150+ with the data plans. Easily a $1,350 annual hit.

The worst.

This is total horseshit... I don't have the plat card, but the phone cap is absurd!

Do they give an option to have a phone line directly thru EY? And they pay the entire bill?

They don't give you the option to have a separate work phone as far as I know

@PwC --nope, but I think it used to be an option 4 or 5 years ago.

Huh. This sucks.

So you use your personal phones for all calls??

@McK1 yeah we basically need to use our personal cell phones

So when you are manager, do you use all of the $150 for phone bills?

I mean $150 is more than sufficient..my phone bill is $45 per month

lol I am still paying off 6s and not looking forward to spending $20 more each month

Any advice on negotiating for things other than salary with current employer? Most interested in a <40 hr work week (while still considered FTE), but also good to hear perspectives on negotiating for more PTO, benefits, 401k match, bonus, etc. How do I turn the conversation to this from annual raise discussion? Should I address with my line manager or HR? What are fair trade-offs for salary $s?
For context, annual reviews are coming up, but company has been clear budget for salary raises is low.

Employer requires use of vacation for sick days for non-exempt salaried employees, then surprises everyone with a forced, unpaid week at the end of the year due to shutdowns. At this point, most people that can afford to plan for the week of vacation time they have to use at the end of the year.

Is this common practice? I am pretty sure it is completely legal, but still seems like a bad policy.

How would you expect to be rejected by a company if you went through 4 interview rounds (for a total of 2-2.5 hours) and met with 5 different people? Phone call? Generic copy and paste rejection email? Email with details and reasoning why? I’ve gotten several rejections after making it this far in an interview process but the latest one just rubbed me the wrong way. No reason for rejection, no personalized message, they didn’t even say they went with another candidate who is a better choice lol
