What happens if you become a Partner, but leave before the completion of your vesting period?

Yes! You get leave with a very large bag to carry all your money in...the problem is that it’s completely empty! But, on the bright side, you can use it as a shopping bag and avoid the plastic bag charge at the market.


You don’t vest.


Whatever it says in your partnership agreement

10 years vesting at EY

Is there any partial vesting? Ex: you were Partner for 4 years, so you get 30% of the normal pension, etc

By all accounts there is still over 100% of float currently shorted. As much as WS loooves to liken themselves to 🐂, they're just the 🤡 in the bullpen. You rode the dip and kept buying. We are going into Monday fully-tanked up on liquid fuel.

Are folks on here interested in finding mentors? Specifically, experienced creatives (designers, writers, ADs, filmmakers) in the tech or ad industries that you can connect with occasionally and learn from to ultimately up-level your career?
I'm building a Mentorship platform geared primarily towards creatives in tech, and looking to gauge interest on if this would be a viable idea - let me know in the comments!
If it's of interest, what are specific features you'd look for?

Looking for input . My company's policy has always been to pay out on rollover PTO when you leave the company. My last day was Jan 8th, and I had 10 days from 2020 I was supposed to be paid on. I talk to my manager and a VP in HR, and they both confirmed I would be paid on the PTO in my Jan 15th paycheck. However, I was not paid and when I emailed about it I was told there was a PTO policy change in April of 2020 and the company no longer pays on carry over PTO...
