Is there a concept of ‘Leave Without Pay’ in US Big 4 firms? I have 8 days of PTO left this year. Is there any way I can take more than 8 PTOs (without digging into next year’s quota)?

As long as u r out of country..u shud be able to.

You can't be in country and be without pay.

You can buy ADO

PwC allows for leave without pay, though you definitely need partner approval. I have known people who took a sabbatical coz they were getting burned out or coz they wanted to pursue not for profit work. If you are looking for just a few days of PTO, HR usually suggests going negative and catching up in the coming months. However to EY1's point, I don't know if there are visa implications.

Can a company(big 4) terminate the individual if the he/she has not disclosed that he joined "x" company for 2-3 months as full time employee but has not disclosed it in any of the discussions with the company. I understand it will not be reflecting in background verification but since the UAN remains same and they can catch from pf.

Pls provide your comments, would be really helpful

Anything else I should consider?

Hey guys! What a great app and space! I’ve been wondering how long I should hang onto this technical recruiter role at 55k salary plus commission . I love my team, the resources and training , PTO, etc… but, I’m underpaid for sure. I got involved with this agency for the training and notoriety. When should I jump ship and which way should I go to make the most $$$ with work/life balance. ??? I know it’s a broad topic without more specs but general answers will do. Thanks!

Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?
