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.
