Clients do come here. I hear a few client execs already furious about this post. Watch out you arrogant “firm”, watch them pull out before your next holiday season.

I’m a client, which is why I asked my question above.

Word of warning, check your employee handbook about unused PTO. Apparently in New York State, even with labor laws protecting unpaid PTO, if it’s written in any employee handbook or material that unused PTO is waived when you quit, that‘s all the employer has to do to get out of paying you.

Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)

I’ve always been a social person and enjoy the team environment. However, as I move up in the firm and over the past few months, I’ve become very anxious for both internal and external meetings/calls and work in general. I’ve been working long hours since August and will continue to do so until April. The holiday breaks are making me anxious, as I’m expecting to be asked to work and not be able to disconnect. Not looking for sympathy, just some late night PA thoughts.

What does M&A consulting at big 4 look like, especially at the entry level? All my previous experience is in audit/tax and I know nothing about consulting, just wanted to try something new. I liked my finance courses in undergrad, but not sure how relevant that is. Would I have ANY transferable skills from my accounting background? Can you explain what the work is like for a new hire? Especially if you've made a similar switch?
