If you are switching from a Big 4 to another public accounting firm, are you required to take mandatory PTO?

I would check whether your state has a statutory notice period (almost all states are at-will and notice is NOT required) and check your firm’s written PTO policy. If you’re an at-will employee, it’s generally not required to take any mandatory PTO or to work at all for that matter, even though giving two weeks is customary.

My 60-day notice period was required under my Senior Manager agreement with KPMG.

No

Possibly. I just gave notice (leaving for industry) and the firm is making me take PTO through the end of my notice period (60 days). If I were leaving for another Big4 they may have elected to pay me out, but they just as easily could have held me to my 60 days with mandatory PTO like they are now.

Looking for some advice.. I am a Tech Recruiter with over 10 years of experience in the agency world.

Work/life balance, flexible schedule, unlimited time off, and great culture are most important to me. Any suggestions on where I should look/apply? I want to stay away from agency recruiting. Thank you!!
