Sooner rather than later, especially if you have a strong network to reach back to. I simply reached out to a partner I had a good relationship with, we chatted, they hooked me up with HR, and essentially asked what I needed to come back. Left Deloitte for 9 months for a 30% raise, came back for a 35% raise from where I was 6 months ago.

I think he meant 35 from D

Just put my 2 weeks in industry (after 6 months) and heading back to Deloitte. Left for 30% jump and returning with additional 20%. Definitely doable!

20% from your industry pay? Or 20% from your previous Deloitte pay?

And new firm's "small team" approach really just means I do everything in isolation and dont have any coworkers to bond/collaborate with. Preferred D's culture, but dont want to lose comp.

Am I missing something here? How is everyone able to boomerang so quick but get those kind of raises? Wouldn’t they hold the upper hand because they don’t have to let you back and why would you all of a sudden be worth that much more to them in such a short time period and especially if you’re the one crawling back?

Not in this economy. These consulting firms want/need us more than we need them.

Is boomeranging still easy if you want to join a practice that’s different than your old one? Still have a good relationship with the partner but the work isn’t interesting....wouldn’t know the new partner

Make the boomerang move soon - returning within 6 months will not break your service and it could take a while for the whole process.

If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason? Is it a bad look if I say I want to stay for the bonus?

The seniors are too busy. Just joined this firm so lateraling isn’t a viable option.
