I was a little worried about leaving KPMG for EY. But I just found out about their unlimited PTO policy. I'm so excited! What a thoughtful move on EY's part. I feel like they always care about their employees the most and differentiate themselves amongst the big 4. I feel like they can definitely swell the ranks now!

Best. Policy. Ever. All you have to do is take PTO everyday. After all, it's unlimited!

UNLIMITED POWER!!

Just wait for the discussions during performance reviews about how much time people take and how dedicated they are / are not to the firm and clients! It’s going to be so awesome!

Everyone at KPMG is so entitled, I bet this new policy will fix that at EY.

I know right. Bunch of snobby millenials. I hope the Boomers put us in our place.

It sounds pretty awesome but actually not. If the employees can take more than 30 - 40 PTOs a year, that's good side of it. But realistically it's not like that. The firm just do it to remove PTO accruals and doesn't want to pay the accrued pto hours when you leave the firm.

United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
