lol when my dad retired he had over a year that they paid out to him.

Does your dad actually take all that vacation and sick time? We don’t get that much but we certainly get more than enough that most people have PTO expiring. Doing it right is having 0 accrued.

like

Is it expiring because we have too much? Or because we don’t have time to take our vacation? I lean towards the latter

Deloitte 1, leave is a benefit. And you can never have more than enough of a benefit. There are people in this country’s corporate world that struggle to maintain and keep their personal/family commitments, often emergency situations, due to lack of paid leave. The corporate America is doing it wrong. There isn’t an ounce of doubt about that. You can elect to not use your leave, but many others would love to have more

EY 3 for my dad he did take most of his vacation (6 weeks per year) but he would also get 3 weeks of sick days and hardly ever took those. Over 30 years all that untaken sick leave adds up. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Imo, ppl that think big4 is the only path are doing it wrong.

How is that even possible? does he truly charge his PTOs, does he taken anytime off? One of my parent works for state high position so PTO days are plentiful as well and NEVER has any left over.
