Which Big Four has the best PTO/Holiday package?

KPMG partners, I heard you get unlimited vacation when you make partner. If you have a vacation balance left when you're promoted from MD to partner, does KPMG pay out that vacation balance? Thanks!

Sometimes, if I’m woken up in the middle of a really deep sleep, it will take me a few minutes to remember basic facts about my life (like where I am, the name of my SO, etc). The rest of my memory is fine, but this seems a little odd - namely because I rarely hear of anyone else sleeping this deeply without sleep aids. I’ll bring it up with my doctor during my next check up, but I’d like to do some research first. Google yields nothing. Has anyone heard of this - or have ideas where to search?
