How is WLB in accounting advisory (FAAS, CMAAS, etc)? I understand there will be busy times with overtime, but is it the type of thing where I’ll be having to cancel weekend plans out of nowhere on a Friday afternoon? Having to cancel PTO for urgent projects, etc?

Good to hear, I heard these kind of things happening in FDD groups so didn’t know if it would be similar for advisory.

I think FAAS is pretty good about respecting PTO or plans that have been made awhile back. I personally have never seen someone made to cancel plans. I think you’d only run into issues if you’re already in a busy period and then decide to make weekend plans.

That sounds fair, thanks

AAS has been extremely understanding of my PTO as well. I schedule PTO far in advance, but I’ve never once had a problem taking it.

I think Director and above can sometimes be pulled into things during pto but it is oftentimes self inflicted. I personally can count, using only a few fingers, the number of Saturdays I’ve worked in the last 6 years, and I grew up in the group. When I have worked on a weekend, it’s been for less than 8 hours. Never have I had anyone tell me to cancel plans, etc.
