Deloitte isn’t off either. They’re encouraging us to take PTO.


KPMG 3. , Europeans have much much better benefits and vacation time than we slaves in this country.

If you are with KPMG and get Monday off, you are lucky. I know many still have their Christmas Holidays time not charging yet.

You guys still work?


Probably why I’m jumping ship to a more orange variety.


You mean they are not off today either?


Ey off Thursday-monday


Wow !


Ey rocking a 5 day weekend!


Sounds like EY’s unlimited PTO isn’t as bad :p


Deloitte isn’t off... just giving us permission to use PTO 🙃


Giving permission to use PTO, since when I am Deloitte’s property.


RSM gets Friday and Monday.


Gotta work even though I will not be doing any work


GT is off Friday and Monday.


I never expected to be given a free day off the day before a holiday weekend… the day before isn’t a holiday.


I typically load my PTO to correspond with holidays, but I don’t expect my employer to give me a 2nd holiday. It’d be nice if they did, but it’s not normal for companies to do it, and so it’s not really something I’m mad about not getting. I get plenty of time off so I’m not going to fault them for an extra day in May when both the holiday and PTO policies are pretty good.


Nope! Just getting Monday off

Sounds like it

PwC has Friday and Monday off.

Deloitte said we should take Friday off lol...industry leading Time off my nutsack

How do you either push through working while sick and not get depressed about it, or basically slack off all day and not feel guilty?

Hi guys, wanted to know a little bit about the Post Merger Integration(PMI) team at KPMG Global Services. Would be great if you can share about nature of projects, work life balance, travel etc.

I really need advice please. I’m a newly promoted S1 in Tax & I’m extremely conflicted. I really wouldn’t mind staying till manager. While I work extremely long hours, I find the work interesting & I enjoy working with my team. I don’t plan on having kids for a while so I really just want to do the best to put myself in a position where I will be the most successful in the long term. People who left at manager, do you think it helped or hindered you by staying that long?
