Most likely ask you to leave on the spot. Just being honest

I’ll still get paid though right?

You will get paid the vacation time you don't use if they term you on the spot. If they take it away, it would not be good for publicity.

Thanks, do people still get paid out their two weeks though?

Highly doubt they will let you stay the 2 weeks

They still pay you the 2 weeks

I left PwC to come to EY and got paid 2 weeks plus vacation

Cool thanks!!

From my experience, you will leave within 2 days and be paid for the two weeks notice and vacation accrued.

What if I gave a 4 week notice, would I be paid for 4 weeks? Also does the same thing apply for all big 4 firms?

Kpmg2, if you gave 4 week I’m sure they’d only pay for two weeks. I’m pretty sure it’s just policy for the b4 to make you leave right away if leaving for a competitor. This isn’t ground breaking news lol. It’s common in all industries

I was offered an amazing job that I’m super excited about. I’m waiting for the background check to clear before I give notice. I’ve been told background checks are taking forever right now. Has anyone else had a background check recently - if so, how long did it take? I’m trying to get an idea for what I should propose for my start date…I really want to have some extended time off before I start.

The owners of our company like to do a holiday handout at Thanksgiving each year. They used to do a whole Thanksgiving meal (turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pie). Last year there was a lack of available turkeys in the quantity we needed, so we switched it up and did a bottle of sparkling cider with a $25 gift card. This year the owners want to do something different but they are not sure what. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have about 300 employees in one location. Thanks!!

My work division is having a “holiday party/gathering” that we have to pay to attend, even though they had one of their best years yet. I guess HR isn’t allowing in-person parties under the company budget, so making us pay is the only way they can have it. They are pressuring people to go. 🤦‍♀️
