My current company is working on onboarding me to a new client. I accepted a verbal offer from another firm this week and haven’t signed anything. I would prefer to wait to give notice until all formalities are completed and background check clears. How do I delay client onboarding? Or do I just go along and burn the bridge in a couple weeks?

If you notify Deloitte, they can exit you that day. I’d let them onboard you and once you’ve got the offer in hand and have passed the background check, then give notice.

Watch out for yourself. You never know what will happen so business as usual until it’s official.

^ This is the way .. I just accepted an offer and was in a similar position. I was being onboarded to a new client and given responsibilities to manage a pipeline and I was like yes sir! …The minute that background check cleared I submitted my resignation. The cry babies who take it personal don’t deserve you anyway ..

Ask your company for a counter offer. It buys time and signals to maybe staff someone else until your situation is not resolved. Make sure it sounds like you are still genuinely interested in staying at your firm to have a solid plan B.
