I’ve never been a regular vacation-taker, but now I’m resolved to become one. Especially because my company has an unlimited PTO policy. Would 4 weeks of total vacation per year be considered a lot/excessive at your company? I’m thinking of doing two one week vacations, and one two week vacation, and booking them far in advance.
How is PTO taxed when you leave the firm?
When you left accenture and cashed out your PTO days, how long after did it take for the $ to show up in your checking account ? I didn’t get it with my final paycheck

Pwc - new joiner, how do we do vacation this week? I got the email but 2 days of vacation Monday and Tuesday is that the same as floating holiday? Or so I use a different WBS for floating holiday?

leaving the firm(KPMG).What’s the strategy to get the most $$? Do you get paid out all vacation days for the year? Even if you are leaving in the beginning of the fiscal year?(October). You get taxed?
How’s your Friday going? In the last 3 hours I’ve found out I’ll be on 3 projects next week and probably book 90+ hours. Oh and I was supposed to be on vacation
If I'm forced to use my vacation, floater, etc. towards my study leave for CFE but I have vacation booked for right after CFE, will PwC still let me take that vacation as a "leave of absence"?
What happened to good old-fashioned holiday bonuses? I'd rather a check than a $20k practice holiday party (and I help plan, so yes, it's at least that much).
Which agency offers the most time off?
Hi fishes, I'm currently at Google and considering an offer from Citadel for a lot more TC. However, I like my WLB at Google. My manager is very hands off and I can frequently enjoy a long weekend or afternoon without clocking vacation time. Do you know how it is at Citadel? My current TC is $250k and the Citadel offer is for $400k.
Has anyone gone on a vacation by themselves? Where did you go? What did you do? I really want to go on a vacation but don’t have anyone to go with and I’m hesitant to just go alone
Wife went into labor 3 weeks early (they're both doing great now) so I had to take PTO yesterday and today. Client just accused me of "faking it" to buy time on a project. Worth it to be petty (cont)
Currently have my vaca. balance maxed out, but I'm going to take a 3 week vacation in 2 months. Anyway to "spend" my vacation in advance w/o actually taking it so I can continue to accrue more vaca???

What’s higher - associate or sr analyst? Currently I’m holding an associate title but got a job offer as a sr analyst at an equally reputable industry company that pays a bit higher. Just worried the title might drag me down a bit - but the salary will make me take it.

I wrote a rec letter for one of my legal assistants for law school right before COVID got bad and we all started working remote. Ever since then, this assistant has seemingly been slacking. There’s only so much I can actually see/review without seriously micromanaging her. I’ve spoken to her about her slacking at least twice and both times she just brushed it off. I want to withdraw my rec letter, but I feel like it’s too late. She is leaving at the end of the summer. Should I just let it be?

My overdue promotion (PM to Sr PM) is in progress, but processing is taking a while due to company Covid delays. Is it inappropriate to ask my manager what the salary increase will be? (It’s killing me to wait and wonder if it’s lower than I’m expecting)
