I do NOT miss those pings from the HR folks bright and early on Mondays if I billed less than 40 hours the previous week. I’m NEVER going back to a B4 firm.

Advice needed. Got a job offer from my dream company, 15k bump in salary, stock options, large jump in PTO, 40 hour work week and way better healthcare. So all in all a better opportunity. I feel guilty leaving my Big 4 job during this time. New company said I can take a month to wrap up some work at my current job if needed. Leaving now would leave my team drastically short staffed for the fall. New hires pushed till 1/1/21. Should I feel guilty? How do I tell them and not burn bridges?

Why are Deloitte HRs doing candidates so dirty!!! They give all these hopes that you are through the rounds , CTC is sent for approval , will get back to you in a week and then do the infamous Disappearing Act. It will be helpful to the candidates to know a simple Yes or just an email saying “we regret to tell you…” We expect (still unacceptable) this from WITCH companies but what happened to the Big 4
