The language I saw at PwC only requires payback for voluntary departure or termination for cause.

like

No. You didn’t initiate the departure from the firm. You’ll have to read the fine print that you signed.

like

No, if you did not leave voluntarily or gave cause to it you should keep the bonus. Never heard of a case that it was not so.

like

is this currently happening or hypothetical?

like

I highly doubt you’d have to pay it back if laid off.

like

Generally, you pay it back if you leave or if you get fired for cause.

Any moms at kpmg take maternity leave around the time when a salary increase should be taking place (e.g. start your leave mid-september when comp increases is expect in October)? Is it worth pushing off those 4 STD weeks before the due date to get yourself the new salary before going on leave? Any other ways to get the higher salary while on leave? Does it take effect if youre using pto and not the parental leave (maybe save your primary parental leave for a day later or something)?

Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks.

The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….

Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm.

The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)
