Assuming you had another job lined up. Otherwise, wait for them to let you go. Unemployment.

Kind of, I did it intentionally though. Was on bench after closing out a project, gave 2 weeks. They agreed to pay me my two weeks and roll my off the following day. Saying “Hey I’m going to a direct competitor” generally makes them roll you out of client work the same day per policy anyway though.

Yes. I’ve seen it

This is common. If U put in ur notice and are not chargeable it is better for your firm (for a variety of reasons) to simply pay you out for the period but make ur last day immediate.

Common and good business decision - why should a company continue to keep a person around who isn’t doing productive work?

Ask your interviewers for feedback

Hello Fishes, I have recently cleared the interviews in Deloitte USI. I had my salary negotiation, 9 days after the last interview. After this, suddenly I had received a mail asking me to submit my personal details on the Avature website, in which I am not able to log in. Reached out to HR, but not getting the link. The team who will release the OL told I need to submit those details, for them to generate and release my OL. Anubody facing this issue or having a suggestion for me?
