If your new firm won't extend an offer until they can find a spot for you at a client/project, not sure I'd be leaving for them. Sounds like they aren't doing well. What happens if the new project doesn't work out after you start? Will they let you go!?

Happened with PwC.. It took a few days before they sent the official offer, and they wouldn't send it into after I accepted the verbal offer
