You can take sabbatical for CPA studies at PwC. I did for 2 months. 20% pay during that time. You just need to use up all your PTO within that period before it kicks in.

during busy times of the year, probably. But if you're flexible with the timing, not hard at all. A director I work with has done one just about every other year for 3 months at a time.

Hi Fishes,
I got offers from Capgemini and HCL with the highest CTC in HCL. I negotiated with Capgemini and they matched the HCL offer.
Now HCL is ready to revise offer again.
Please suggest Is it good idea to take HCL offer now after negotiating with Capigemini.

Need to move to the burbs w/fiancee, but where? Staying in BK is not an option, though we will eventually work in the city 1-2 days/week (someday?). Won't do long island, need a 2 car garage w/space to work on cars and also space for a woodshop whether it's in basement or elsewhere. Planning on having kids and because we'll work from home a lot still need office space. I grew up in burbs and it wasn't so bad because I lived walking distance to train station into the city & nice downtown. 800k!
