Sounds like they're luring everyone into getting the PTO down before eventually switching to unlimited lol

Unlimited PTO is meaningless in the face of utilization goals.

That’s so much better than ey doing it without any pay (hurting me financially) and trying to sell it as a benefit to me (insulting me intelligently)

$250 is a lot better for them than what a lot of us would have to get paid out when we leave.

Yeah they’ll pay you $250 so they don’t have to pay it out when you leave/if and when they switch to unlimited.

I’m hoping it’s because of the gobs of payouts they have had to make on full COVID banks when people jump ship

Wow pwc is so great they care about their employees so much omg we love the firm the partners really care we really made a right choice we are the best big 4. No I’m not brainwashed no haven’t had cool aid blah blah blah🤮

This is a great perk. Many of us are close to max 176 hrs. So over next year, we will accrue another 176 hrs. This means if we take just the new earned hours we make additional $1000 in a year for enjoying our vacation time, not lose it and still have same vacation balance. So I think this will encourage people, to me for sure, to take time off and recharge. Not sure why people are trying to downplay this perk offered by PwC.
