Unless you have something internal to transition, I imagine HR may just term you next day. I’ve never worked at EY though so they may have different policy.

Yes I figured as much

Give them two weeks. Worst case scenario is nobody talks to you for two weeks since you are on the bench (out of sight/out of mind). Best case they terminate you sooner.

I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?

The firm “encourages” reaching out to partners to chat, though I’ve tried and been essentially ignored. Partners rarely have enough time to give me feedback, so I feel they don’t have time to chat.
