Crowe - 20 days for everyone, up to 25 once you hit 10 years. That PTO includes sick days so no paid sick days. 8 or 9 holidays a year (with a floating generally). Kind of thinking Crowe’s is pretty crappy comparatively now, maybe a good question for our upcoming SoTF :) Random perk: 96 hours of Board time off if you are a member of a BOD.

Staff - seniors are 20 vacation, 5 sick, 10 holidays (if you can't take due to work obligations they are floating). When it comes to serious sick, if you go on ST disability you receive 100% pay for the waiting period. Manager/5 years is 25 days vacation, senior manager/10 years is 28 days, director/principal is 30 days. They are moving to "self managed" (unlimited) next year - I plan on following the same guidelines anyways.

30 days PTO + 14ish holidays. No sick days but PTO days are to be used for that. Note, 30 days is manager level.

If your current PTO plan is 23 days as a staff, you will have 28 days as a manager. If your current PTO plan is 25 days, you will have 30 as a manager. Deloitte introduced different PTO plans for those hired post 2016. Cathy gave us 2 extra holiday days that are now between 12/25 and 1/1 which means we have that week in between now completely off. For those hired after this was introduced, they reduced your PTO by 2 days a year and capped your PTO accrual at 15 days a year to offset this but kept us older folks on the better PTO plan.

K14 at PwC I have 23 vacation days, 12 or so holidays and unlimited sick time. After 20 years I can say I rarely take more than a few days per year but last year I had over 2 weeks due to nasty viral infection and I had the swine flue and was out almost a month.

16 which to me seems good compared to my friends in industry but crap compared to everyone else I know in public accounting However some of my friends in industry asked me recently if we ever just get random Friday’s off because it’s summer or because we work hard and I just LOL’ed to that question

Unlimited, it used to be 25 days. If you will be gone longer than 3 weeks in a row you need approval but it's been super nice not having to count days and plan ahead. Now if I have capacity to take off, I take off.
