Switching Big 4 is good for short term salary increase or service lines.

If you’re doing the same type of work it’s largely going to be the same. Except you give up a network & unless you negotiated well you’re likely coming in on the clients that are hard to staff (aka the bad ones)

Quitting before finalizing offers?

I’m at post onsite and negotiation stage at a couple places but it may take another month or 2 due to either hiring freezes or general slow processes.

I want to quit now to go on vacations that I held off during prep. Does it make much difference when I negotiate offers? Like if my upcoming unvested RSU would be (partially) matched, and they find out I quit somehow, is it no longer matched? Other potential snags?

Already burned most of my PTO interviewing.
