How many pay cycles does it take to get your PTO pay out check? Received regular working check on time, but haven’t received PTO check yet.
If I’m planning to resign on Jan 10, but won’t be back from PTO before 1/10 should I email my partner and manager on the project the week before to let them know?
👀 My supervisor is a micromanaging control freak, so when she was on vacation I shifted everything in her office to the left 😂😬
I had some major life events this year for which I had to take a large chunk of time off, and with half the year already gone, I’m getting worried about making the hours for my bonus. Is it always an “all or nothing” or do firms give prorated bonuses in certain situations?
How many days of PTO does each of big 4 has? For some reason I thought all big 4 has unlimited PTO policy just to shake off the huge liabilities on their books, but apparently I was wrong based on my potential offer with one of them.

Etiquette question - my company is flying me out to England in October for a week ( the week of the 3rd) and paying for my flights. I’ll be training new teammates and be in day long meetings the whole time. Is it a faux pas for me to use PTO and extend that Europe stay for a few days to explore London on my own time? Or since they’re flying me out and I have to get home anyway, is it ok?

When submitting resignation do you pro rate the number of holiday days you would have accrued? I have leave booked around time of resignation (of which 5 days is PY roll over) so wondering if I can add an additional 2 days leave to the date from which I'm counting back 30 days from ie 20 days normal notice 5 days PTO (starts Thursday) puts me 27 days post submitting notice (wed). Could I add 27/365x 25 day holiday allowance = 2 extra days of leave I can add.
Does it make sense to max your 401k contributions and not save in a taxable/savings account? I see a lot of people in this bowl with similar salaries to me ($110k) and max their 401k so just wondering if I’m just missing something. I max out my roth and hsa, have an emergency fund, and make post tax 401k contributions but wouldn’t be able to put aside anything for a down payment/vacation if I were to max my 401k. Currently live in a VHCOL

PwC has office wide holidays Dec 23 - Jan 3? Is this on top of the allocated vacation days / PTO? Can anyone confirm, I’m skeptical 🤔
Boss told me I need a vacation to just get away from work… little does he know, I just need a vacation from him.

Very interesting to look at. Already knew that the rich tend to get richer after a recession, but this trend seems to have started in early 1980s, when the top 0.01% income really started skyrocketing.
Anyone have any guesses as to why?
