Well you'll have to be secretive bc Deloitte gets a % of your business if you stared it while still employed there. With that being said I'd ramp up while still making money and stay on the pay roll as long as you can. Just be careful.

So I have a moral dilemma. I requested a raise a month ago. It was finally approved. Within the last month they’ve offered 3 others counter offers AFTER I requested my raise. In that time I was interviewing elsewhere. The job I want is about $5-7k more than my raise request, but the benefits and bonuses are significantly better. Is it frowned upon to get a raise and then leave 3-4 weeks later? I don’t feel valued knowing others got a raise after I asked, and much quicker (less than a week).

Edit (some are asking but I’ll reply in comments or DM)
1) tremendous WLB and people centric approach - people centric is not lip service.
2) pay is more than competitive and growth has been great -
3) you make a real impact on clients.

Quick poll: List your gender & a quick sentence on whether you like to work for male or female bosses (ok to say no preference). Me personally - Male - I’ve had better experiences working with male managers. I’ve noticed that more female managers feel disadvantaged and try extra hard to prove themselves (incredulous this happens in 2020), but in the process tend to be more demanding and stressful to work with. This is not intended to offend anyone. Just genuinely looking to learn and grow.
