If you put in notice before the 15th, they can and probably will not include the bonus in your first check in August (this happened to someone in my office). However, once they pay it out, they can’t claw it back as it’s a bonus for your efforts in the previous year. They only claw back bonuses paid out like CPA bonuses or signing bonuses because those usually come with strings attached and language stating you have to stay for a certain period of time. I had to sign an agreement for my CPA bonus that I’d stay one year.

. I’m leaving to go to the industry as an accounting analyst. I’m done with public accounting. I will say BDO culture and hours was so much better for me than EY

Any feedback on where you are going? I’ve been looking at BDO as my exit from big four.

Hmm. Do you know where they went? I heard the hours at BDO were better and there’s not as much compliance.

I just feel dumb and unmotivated so not sure another accounting firm is the right move?

So i feel you on that. After I left EY I should have simply jumped straight into industry I shouldn’t have went back into public accounting
