I have been seeing a lot of discussions/ questions about the bad WLB at Deloitte among folks. Guys, Deloitte is a highly reputed firm that is known for the quality of work. They charge heavily to clients. (Almost 5-6 times hourly rate than a typical IT firm). Naturally, the clients want to get the work done ASAP with quality. Hence there is a massive amount of work pressure on the management and the resources. Deloitte compensates their resources really well along with providing a lot of Perks.

I had put in my papers a week back but my project is shutting down and my supervisors have said to look for a job to everyone. How do I tell the new company that I will be able to join earlier in a way that my offer is not impacted? Also, is it wrong if I have a month (or more) long gap between last working date and joining date? Fishes, appreciate any help!

My firm is being acquired by big D. They offered me Analyst(I'm 1.5 YOE) with the same TC as my current role. Was able to negotiate up to Consultant role and 15% more TC(now 90K). Since then I've interviewed with a few other firms which have offered north of 110k which I passed up due to firm reputation. But now Accenture is offering Consultant and 115K, and they are said to be the top player in my field along with D(oracle consulting). What do you guys think I should be considering here?
