PwC has unlimited sick days and honestly so many holidays and vacation hours that it feels unlimited and you get it paid out… best to of both worlds!

like

Interesting @Deloitte. Permanent change or temporary due to COVID and current demand? And how was it implemented? 3 weeks added to the numerator (vacation + charge hours)? Or removed from denominator (avail hours - PTO)?

We suspended util requirements when COVID first hit and util was plummeting, but that was temporary. Surprised to hear the calc would change even on a temp basis

Haha. Giving "unlimited" PTO to people who are measured by billable hours is like giving unlimited iced coffee to the people manning the Antarctic climate station. What does it matter if you cannot take it?

Not us. Maxes out at five weeks unless you're grandfathered into another arrangement.

Unlimited PTO!!! But it impacts your utilization… it sounds great but it’s actually about the same as dedicated PTO

Unlimited* pto

Ours maxes at 4-5 weeks depending on level/tenure, with the ability to carry up to half of that over to the next year if unused

Definitely not Accenture

Deloitte starts you with 5 weeks and it goes up after M to 6 weeks. Rollover up to 5 weeks at year end

I roll over my full 6 weeks.

With unlimited PTO couldn’t one (if they were so inclined) take PTO forever and not work. I mean technically the policy says “unlimited”…

Deloitte has pretty decent balance. Specially now a days.

I’d say even longer than now a days. It was 25-30 days when I joined in 2008.

Never want unlimited. PO’d if we did that - majorly.

Lol I would almost not accept a job offer based solely on the fact they are “unlimited PTO”

Honest questions about voting process as a first time voter and recently naturalized citizen.
1- Why isn’t it declared a holiday to encourage voting?

3- Why are mail in and early votes not counted on Election Day (not a day early, not a day late?). That way there would be no confusion.

Supervisor said I couldn’t have week off for vacation this summer bc another coworker of higher seniority asked off the same week and two people can’t go on vacation at the same time because of staffing. But this coworker that asked off works different shift than me? He works 1st shift I work second. We have a total of 8 workers and no more than 4 work a day. can easily be covered. This has never been a problem until this year (we got a new supervisor). we’re used to being short staffed anyway

How is everyone planning their family vacations? Specially looking for people with kids. I have 2 kids and a family vacation for 4 people for a week easily comes to a min of 5k -6k (flight, car, hotel, eating out every day, entertainment tickets) and if we end up taking 2-3 vacations per year, it costs about 15-20k. This feels like a lot, or is everyone spending this much?
