Advisory Managers that left EY for another big 4…when you gave your 2 weeks notice (or 4 weeks), were you let go effective immediately or did they allow you to continue to work despite the fact you were going to a competitor?

A 100% Consulting answer. “It Depends” ☺️. Most cases they’ll let u go before the 2 or 4weeks, but depends on the circumstances n Partner/HR decisions

I cant see them keeping me around seeing the deals and the pipeline once i tell them where im going

If you tell them you are going to a competitor, you may get 1 day at max. Likely they will ask you tot leave right away - but you will get paid for the last two weeks

Even better - you get a 2 week paid holiday. Wait until Friday before you submit your notice so you can get the bonus

You do not have to tell them where you are going. However If you choose to disclose it, the firm will unlikely wait for 2-4 weeks but should comp you for the notice period. Really depend on the account team and practice leadership.

So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
