Are firms over compensating on their hiring right now? Have near 100% job security at a boutique right now, and have an offer for Accenture. Concerned they’ll drop me like a sack of potatoes if there’s a slowdown on projects in a year. I think the comp increase is worth it and the boomerang opportunity is probably there for my current firm, but certainly seems like a risk.

Yes. They will drop you like a sack of potatoes at the whiff of a slowdown.

All big firms do this, just take it

I think the next benefit is job security. I am in the same boat as you.

I got hired at a firm full-time. Worked a lot of hours and they dropped me. I would find out the project they want you to work on, the budget, and the anticipated budget
