@EY8.. unfortunately some departments like IT, facilities, Business Center, aren't given the option to work from home.. EY should just close for the week.. that being said.. i know plenty of engagements that are extremely late with filings and are still working on returns that were due on the 15th on their 3rd extension.. so...

Deloitte doesn't officially shut down. But damn near everyone requests the last 2 weeks of December off. The only ones that are working are teams with tight January deadlines or first years that need to do counts.

No EY doesn't. They're cheap. A manager asked scheduling to bring staff who are on vacation this week and next week back. Loll
