I use all my PTO every year. It's a commitment.

Having worked at both Deloitte and Accenture, have to say Accenture has the edge on this one... At Accenture, chargeability(utilization) is not affected by PTO..

Every time they ask for suggestions for improvement, someone suggests making chargeability independent of PTO, and it's really popular. And of course they don't act on it.

You get 3 weeks when you start, 4 weeks after 3 years. Don't know many people that actually take them all but we can rollover up to two years of your annual accrual rate. Basically becomes harder and harder to take time as you get more senior, most people get paid out a ridiculous sum when they leave

Hahaha 200 /250 how does it matter??!! The question should be how many hours of pto have you actually been able to use??! Using more than 150 impacts utilization big time till you get to sc

3 days per year

@D5 I schedule weeks of PTO throughout the year in January so I can say it was on the calendar and make it easier to take. Also, PTO in between projects is key.

200 hours plus 9 holidays.

Deloitte only gives one year rollover in the US :/

200 hours plus holiday. You can rollover half a year and it does not affect you utilization.

I get 200 hrs and 10 holidays at the C level

I have been at my company for a little less than 4 years now. I’ve had the third highest sales last year out of a team of 50 and consistently the highest outbound calls per week. They told me I can start WFH once I hit $1mil in profit, but then rescinded right before I hit the goal. They have also denied simpler request like time off, when I know they have approved this before for others. I feel super unappreciated, but the money is great. I’m not sure if I should look elsewhere and start over?

Would you rather: (1) stay in big law (V100), collect your checks, keep billing 1900+ annually, knowing you’ll likely only progress to non-equity partner but stable pipelines for work; or (2) transition to boutique firm with no billable requirements, no minimum salary, on a pure revenue split (half of collections), option for equity partner in 16 months?
