KPMG > EY, its official no entitled unlimited PTO... “Please fix” and revise all future big 4 memes to adjust accordingly
How to grow a beard in a professional manner: step 1- leave on vacation for >1 week; step 2- don't shave; step 3- never come back...
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
Has anyone bought a vacation rental in Orlando? Any tips? Looking at reunion, windsors, champions gate. It’s all a little overwhelming. I’d plan to rent it out part of the time on vrbo and stay there maybe a month a year.
KPMG firm-wide update re PTO: we aren’t AT THIS TIME considering the unlimited PTO policy EY just rolled out, we think our current policy is the right policy for our people even though it has a balance sheet impact.
We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
I’m on vacation (only 3 days) - how do I stop looking at my email and thinking about all the work I’ll come back to?!
First time on bench since I joined last year. Feels weird to have pretty much nothing to do but really needed the time off. Should I try to find a project right away or wait for one more week? ⛱
Accounting bowl, kpmg just announced we’re finally getting 2 shutdowns, one at calendar YE and one around July 4th. They will do so by moving 5 PTO days into the holiday calendar. How would you feel?
First day in industry and go to look at my time sheet.... What? There’s only one code I need to put my time to if I’m working? I can submit it weekly? And I don’t need to give at least 2 weeks advance for PTO when I’m requesting it? Oh me oh my why did I not make this move sooner!
How did you all handle like a family matter or traumatic event that happened while super busy at work? I’m finding myself being very unmotivated and unable to focus, but feel like I can’t take time off.
Notice etiquete question. If you give your 2 weeks’ notice on a Monday, is your last day a Monday (2 weeks later) or can it be the previous Friday? Does your answer change depending on the time (morning/ afternoon) notice is given? If I don’t want to potentially burn any bridges, should I just have my notice period end on a Monday and just take that day out of my scheduled vacation before starting my next job? First time giving notice - would be interested in hearing what others have done.
Does anyone own a second home for vacation? If so, how did you finance/purchase it? Considering doing some serious research on the prospect, and would not rent it out, but simply use on weekends and such.
Just got an offer to work someplace else. Pay, PTO, medical and 401k seem good. What else could I try to negotiate?
What are my fb peeps doing / going during this holiday season. I want to head somewhere last week of December. Need suggestions.
My company is changing to unlimited vacation days. Will they pay out the people who still have vacations saved up? They are being super secretive. Has anyone gone through this?
Friend interviewing for Account Manager role at EY, any tips for the final in-person interviews? Thanks
FSO TTT salary range for Senior 1 or Mgr 1 HCOL.
I received an offer from one of the MBBs (Analyst position - banking benchmarks team). The offer briefly mentions that I'd receive performance bonus, but doesnt mention any range (% bracket). Nor does the compensation structure has any component of Performance Bonus (which is usually a part of TC) Should I ask the recruiter on this? What to do? Thanks in advance!
For those teleworking due to COVID, when did you announce your pregnancy at work? I’m worried I’ll be passed over for opportunities.
Imagine for a moment that all strategic consulting firms in the region would have consultants work no later than 9pm. Do you think the quality of the output would decrease? Or maybe the pricing the client is willing to pay would be lower? Or perhaps nothing would happen? I am thinking whether we work long hours because it’s by now part of work approach and culture or because we need to. (Personal experience: in London for my same firm I used to work much less and the output was great…)
Bi folks... do you experience lean towards different gender at different times of your life?
Unfortunately was just laid off. I’m taking this as an opportunity to look forward to new experiences and people to work with. If anyone knows of any Producer gigs, I’m now available. I’m agency side.
A question for Big 4 peeps - if you know the salary range in the group you wanna go for is 150k to 170k, how much should you say when the HR asks you how much you want? Is 180k too much to start with? (Didn’t want to start with 170k since they will only come back with lower I assume)
How do Big 4 Experienced Hire interviews differ from fresh graduate interviews? Hoping to transition from a boutique firm I joined after college to the Big 4. Interviewed with MBB during school, however, not sure what to expect as an Experienced Hire. YOE 4, Midwest LCOL. Reason: great pay and WLB, but, not challenged and little upwards trajectory.
Hi everyone, Does anyone know about the org. structure at WNS in the Analytics field? I am having 3.3 yrs of exp and am given the offer of "Deputy Manager - Analytics". Can you help me know if the role is fine with respect to my experience? It would also be great if you could help me understand the org. structure or hierarchy of roles over there?
I’m torn about going up for promotion to director with an infant at home. While I’m professionally ready, I wonder if it’s a bad decision on the home-front. Should I stay in my mgr role or go for it?
That awkward moment when you type <3 to a client in Skype chat and it auto changes it to ❤️
Can someone provide link for applying Canadian visitor visa. I am on H1b and need to travel for a weekend for a wedding. The process I found online required medical exam and so many other things. I heard earlier that getting a tourist visa is not that complex
What do DEI people actually do? Besides give the (mostly false) appearance of diversity within the agency?
Should I stop depositing into my 401k?
