PTO structure at other Big4? We get 25 days PTO as staff, plus firm also shuts down for a week over winter break. How about the others?
I’m happy to report Juneteenth will be recognized at my firm as a paid holiday beginning in 2023. Yes, I had to have the conversation with HR this morning. ✊🏾
The company I just joined has unlimited PTO. What is a reasonable amount of days to use per year?
I asked 3 of my higher ups to write me letters of recommendation a month ago when I put in my resignation. I went on PTO for a couple weeks & followed up with my manager today. He told me “actually I was told we aren’t allowed to write them for you. Sorry.”
I asked why and he just shrugged and continued the conversation...
Has anyone heard of anything like this? Bosses “not being allowed” to write LORs for exiting employees? I’m leaving on my own terms & good standing.
Freelanced for 5 yrs, but interviewing for FT roles. I have a conference + vacation booked in April/May which would equate about 8-9 days OOO. If I land a job offer, how should I proceed?
Am I crazy to leave PA before 1 year to pivot out of accounting? Joined PA post college in 2021, I don’t want to stay in my current service line/tax, hate remote, & a got sad market adjustment. No CPA, but have a job lined up doing something more interesting in data analytics / forecasting and for 7-8% pay increase, but less vacation time. In this hot of a job market am I dumb for not leaving for a higher pay bump/before 1yr mark?
Any other advice appreciated, thx! Deloitte EY PwC KPMG
PwC to pour $2.4B into raises, benefits and weeklong breaks in bid for white-collar talent
I work for a company with a pretty generous PTO policy and a mostly remote flex policy (4 days a month in office if within 75 miles of the building). One thing I’m wondering if there is a way to help us I get the “I’m taking a mental health day” call out regularly which causes a strain on the rest of the team because we were unable to prepare like we would with pre-planned PTO. Any ideas of things I can do as a manager to encourage pre-planned PTO instead of these call outs?

When should I give my notice? I’ll be starting my new job in mid January. Do people usually give more than a 2 weeks notice during holiday season? I’m a 2nd yr. I also have 10 days of PTO that I’ll lose Dec 31st if I don’t use it!

Considering a move from my firm to government for better work life balance. A move for better pay, better vacation, fewer hours, better benefits, but no bonuses and salary growth opportunities would be less at least in this role. I've worked in the space in the past and felt like a hamster wheel. Have several kids & husband works shifts and I'm thinking it may be time for government pensions, benefits. What could go wrong with this for even a couple years? If I hate it I could always come back?
Does anyone find life as an attorney completely unbearable? I do civil litigation and I constantly have that “it’s finals week/month” feeling with constant impending doom every which way I look, and I find it hard to escape from that even when I’m on “vacation.” My only hobbies are the gym, and cars, and I don’t even really make enough money to support the latter. Sometimes I feel like I need that shrink from Office Space to hypnotize me out of my misery

Aside from knowing vacations aren’t a thing for PMs. How does one burn some time off without keeping tabs on things? (I don’t have an assistant yet)
I’m daydreaming about stepping away for a while. Those of you that have taken an extended sabbatical or time off, how did it go? Did you negotiate with your company to keep your job or just quit? Did you get the peace and perspective you wanted? How long were you away? What did you do?
I had final techno manager round which was completed on 30 Mar, and after ugadi holiday, on 6th I have received the positive feedback and confirmation mail and asked to share the payslips and relevant documents. Still waiting for the offer letter. Called HR on 20th April for the updates, she told she is working on my offer and it will release soon. Any ideas on this fishes?Cerner Corporation
Do some of you all really not take your vacation? Why? Even if it’s hard to take a full week off, just use it for a lot of shorter vacations. I get 25 days and use it all every year
For folks on H1B visa, are we allowed a gap of 2 weeks between two jobs? I am thinking of going on a vacation before starting a new position at another firm.

Why is this guy thanking EY for his marriage?
After my first child was born, it was clear that staying home full time wasn't for me. Now, she is in preschool and my second is 1.5 and still home. My plan had always been to work until they were in preschool and then stay home since that would allow me find a better balance between myself and their needs. Changes to our childcare arrangements have me feeling I need to stay home now rather than waiting. Has anyone found themselves in a similar situation with similar doubts?
