Haven’t heard specifically for PwC but at Deloitte if you share that your leaving to a competitor they’ll walk you out the door the same day.

Left for Deloitte a couple years ago. Mixed reactions but most people understood. Reminded me I wasn't able to recruit people from PwC, had restrictions on my clients and was asked to turn in my laptop that day

And they’ll pay you out for those 2 weeks, correct?

Yes that’s correct they respect the 2 week notice period. More so it’s just a precaution to make sure you don’t take anything with you on your way out from what I understand

Most likely they will house arrest you for one month and release you after injecting a microchip in your brain to transmit all your future employer’s secrets back to us. We just collaborated on this initiate with CCP.
