One tip I got early in my career is to always carry over the 240 every year or as close to it. It becomes worth more and more as your comp increases. And when you leave you maximize your payout.

Taxes will be higher for payout. But if you stay employed, you likely wouldn't be allowed to start your next job until after the PTO expires and you formally resign

No.

But if you're on the bench, you could conceivably use up your PTO. Once it's over, then hand in your resignation and then put in your notice. In fact, if you're on the bench, I guess you could not take PTO unless you're staffed on a project. Once you get people reaching out, take PTO and then put I. Your notice. You could stretch out and get a month or so's extra pay for doing nothing

Thanks all- I actually realized I do get extra free $ for any holiday that might fall in the extended PTO.. (and not being able to start work for the next firm is not an issue as I'll be going back to b-school. Thinking about taking a couple of months off before school)

When do ACN bonuses get paid? Could you stay until your bonus payout and then leave?

No A1. Withholdings will be higher, not [necessarily] taxes.

Insurance expires at the end of the month In which you resign. Plan around that if needed.

Also if you take PTO, you still accumulate PTO until resignation.

Hi Ladies - Trying to decide when to officially go on leave. I was thinking two weeks before I’m due but everyone keeps telling me to work up until the due date to have more time at the end with the baby. I’m honestly just tired of working and barely get any sleep at this point. Wouldn’t mind having some me time (I have 5 months leave) but also realize the baby could come early. Let me know your thoughts!

Hi Ladies, I just need to talk my thoughts out. I’m about to visit my SO’s family with him out of state and stay for four days. I agreed to do so a few months back. Recently with workload change (I was planning to take time off eoy but won’t be able to do so), I really don’t have it in me to give four precious days to someone else. I’m about to head to airport soon and really really really don’t want to go. But I feel bad for cancel so last minute. This is purely on my bandwidth, not them…

Hi there! I need some guidance. HR and global leadership rolled out some amazing new initiatives like not starting until 10 am on Mondays, no meeting Fridays and required 2 additional summer days a month. The problem is, my boss refuses to comply with the initiatives. He constantly scheduled meetings before 8 am on Mondays and after 7 pm on Fridays. He also doesn’t let me take time off. Should I go to HR? I’m really not one to complain but I’m tired and extremely burnt out. Thanks for your help!

Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
