Does anyone have any insight as to how PTO is discussed now in the unlimited scenario? When I was at EY (pre-unlimited PTO), how frequently people took vacation and for how long was definitely a topic of conversation. People who took off a lot or for extended periods were not viewed very well. I’ve been so curious whether that has changed with unlimited PTO.

5 weeks plus 4 weeks of firm holidays.

About 1-2 weeks

5-7 weeks

Yes

2.5 weeks.

Around 6.

We had 5-6 weeks plus the two breaks so that’s what I’m doing.

5-6 weeks

2 full weeks and then various days adding up to an additional 5-10 days

1-1.5

First year with unlimited pto used around 5 weeks. A 3 week vacation, a 1 week vacation, and the rest a day or two around holidays for extra long weeks

Is it realistic in big law to take 20 days of mostly uninterrupted vacation time a year? My firm has unlimited and my group doesn’t take more than a couple days off a year. I like the work and people but there’s no way I can or will stay long term without being able to take 20 days of real vacation a year for my health and to live my life. Firm policy says while vacation is unlimited they encourage 20 days. What’s the temperature in the room on this ?

Advice needed. Got a job offer from my dream company, 15k bump in salary, stock options, large jump in PTO, 40 hour work week and way better healthcare. So all in all a better opportunity. I feel guilty leaving my Big 4 job during this time. New company said I can take a month to wrap up some work at my current job if needed. Leaving now would leave my team drastically short staffed for the fall. New hires pushed till 1/1/21. Should I feel guilty? How do I tell them and not burn bridges?

Good afternoon everyone! I currently work for select quote selling Medicare insurance. Which I enjoy for the most part, but I’m on a very tight schedule and barely have any time off and it’s making me unhappy to not get to spend time with family and friends. Also being super micromanaged. Does anyone know anything about the company assurance? I’ve thought about them because they give you leads and you have freedom. If anyone has any suggestions about any company I’d appreciate it :)
