Is there actually a huge boomerang culture at Deloitte? The numbers being offered to me are astronomical April 2019 - C @ $87k October 2020 - Quit because of no pay increase and went to a Tier 3 firm @ $120k June 2021 - Offered $142k as an SC Any downsides to boomeranging?

Most homegrown talent is underpaid relative to external hires. Your numbers don’t seem out of whack compared to what external hires would ask for. If you had stayed at Deloitte and gotten GSAP for example and did MBA, you’d be coming back now at like $180-200K all in with signing, bonus, etc.

I already make $140,000 working at Slalom where I haven’t worked over 40 hours once since joining 3 years ago. I could likely make more if I went elsewhere but the work life balance is so good that I haven’t pursued elsewhere. I have a few dozen Deloitte friends and many of them are doing 60-70 hour weeks and make like $20,000 more.

I boomeranged from PwC to a boutique firm for 6 months. I came back this month to a 45k raise and a 10k signing bonus. I did trade out my title bump. I left 6 months ago as an Ex Associate and coming back as an A3. I was an SA at the boutique firm.

I was at the AC but worked exclusively with the team I just joined. The transition to this team took a bit longer than I liked so I left then rejoined formally in Advisory.

Downside to boomerang is you still won’t like the work . Might as well pursue something else. But if you just need quick money, it’s not a bad idea at all. Depends on your priorities

I left D for EY and I went from C/$72 to SC/$140. I don’t think D would beat $140 for an SC so I got my paycheck without having to boomerang back. I actually would like to boomerang back but I don’t think I can get a substantial raise to make it worth it

So,,, I’m watching all of my good HPs leave and getting amazing increases…. Manager 10+yrs exp, know Oracle, SAP, Adaptive, most all processes, current $170K, I’d like to work 5 more years until my side hustle picks up. Considering another B4 or ACN or similar… not a fan of the independence BS as I’m starting more side hustle and other diverse investments. Swag on $$ increase? How difficult to establish internal cred and network? Worth the move? Title promo is not a deal breaker
