It's not entitled at all, part of your comp should be opportunity cost of leaving... you should always mention it as part of your full comp when they ask...

If the new company really wants you, they might be willing to pay your bonus back for you, but I suspect you mentioning this to them will lead them to realize they've offered a job to an entitled brat

Moral of the story Deloitte will get its money back, make it part of the sign on bonus for the new job. It's all very standard

Are we really talking about 10k?!?

At the very least they can clawback your full last paycheck and your PTO payout. Also I would def mention it in comp negotiations for the new job. I left recently and got a signing bonus to replace the annual bonus I would have gotten from D in September. The new company didn't offer it at first but I mentioned it and they added it to the offer.

Forget entitled. It's flat out unethical. You made a deal... stick to the terms.

M1, in what world is 10k not worth an hour of your time?

Thanks in advance.
