Not in PA haha


AA1 at PwC we do, KPMG and EY do too. I meant more outside PA since I know inside PA it's standard

Most places don't count holidays as pto. You can always ask and clarify though.

Holiday=required time off PTO= personal, optional

For the record I was kidding cause for half the year people get work holidays that don't exist for us. Then if you're booked on clients in fall/winter it's 50/50 you'll get the holiday pending the status of the work at the time

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?

Is it possible for an agency to be successful without burning their people out? I've been at both types: an agency that keeps winning awards and doing great work, but burns everyone out; an agency that does mediocre work, can't hire any good talent but the QOL is unparalleled. So does the best of both not (or can't) exist?


One of the primary aims of the criminal justice reform movement is to help ex-convicts re-enter the workforce by sealing criminal records, and making it more difficult for employers to judge applicants based on criminal history. The idea is that people are redeemable and capable of reform. Yet the same movement thoroughly enjoys getting people fired and publicly shaming them for making arguments they find “offensive”. A rapist is capable of reform, but not someone who makes a dumb tweet. Got it.
