Has anyone planned on quitting, but used vacation time to meet a bonus date before submitting your notice? Starting school this fall but don’t want to miss out on my bonus in sept. Is this unethical?

If it is ethical to delay previous year’s performance bonus for 6 months just so that employees stay longer, then what you are planning on doing is also ethical.

Very true C1, hadn’t thought of it like that!

Your employers, throughout your life, will pinch pennies wherever they can as long as they think you won’t quit. They won’t care if it makes your life worse. Don’t feel bad about screwing a massive corporate entity out of, at most, several grand.

As written in your employment contract, the firm can terminate you any time of their choosing, and you can also quit just the same. Where is the ethical dilemma?

Do you have enough vacation saved to cover two weeks past the date bonuses pay out? If so, then you are golden. If not, it gets a lot stickier.

Arrow Icon

Only unethical if you lie about intent to come back. You earned the vacation, if taking it means you’ll still be active when bonuses pay out, go for it.

Thanks for not giving a typical ‘partner’ answer 😊. I appreciate the honesty

If you switch between big 4, do you get blacklisted from the big 4 you left? Say you left as an senior for a manager position. Would you be eligible for rehire as director 3-4 years later at your original firm? Do your previous colleagues feel like you’re a sell out? Do people judge you or feel like you’ve abandoned the firm? Deciding if I should jump ship after 2 years for title and salary bump. Thanks!
