Quitting before finalizing offers?

I’m at post onsite and negotiation stage at a couple places but it may take another month or 2 due to either hiring freezes or general slow processes.

I want to quit now to go on vacations that I held off during prep. Does it make much difference when I negotiate offers? Like if my upcoming unvested RSU would be (partially) matched, and they find out I quit somehow, is it no longer matched? Other potential snags?

Already burned most of my PTO interviewing.

Sign an offer and lock in a start date before quitting. End of story. Not the other way.

And typically people allocate their monthly income/paychecks on rent, utilities, groceries/food, etc so if you quit now and don't have another job officially lined up, then you'll need to figure all that stuff out. Job gaps are also annoying to deal with in the case you're not able to land a job right away.

Having a current job while trying to get an official offer from other companies is a big safety net.

I did that. Don’t sweat it homie, I got like 3 offers with no start date. Took a vacay and one job dropped me but the other two had start dates ready

It was a gov contract and the company that was going to hiring me, lost the contract to the gov agency.

During negotiations mention you're joining next month but you need to sign contract to leave your company. And you need 1 month gap for reset. This worked for me many times.
I never took more to than 3 weeks gap. It worked like a charm. As it was less than 1 month, I never had a visible gap in the resume.

Evil Knievel would!!!

Option 2: Deloitte has an established team albeit pretty siloed with their sub offerings within the larger service offering. They offer more for a tenured manager I guess c.mid 70s starting

Option 3: Stay back at EY, look to make SM in Oct 2023. Take the hike/correction this yr. Been wth the firm 5 yrs

So I recently found out that my current company is underpaying me. And by that I mean that literally any other company is willing to pay me 15-20k more than what I make now. In my current role they've asked me to take on extra responsibilities with no financial compensation (scrum master type stuff) while still doing my engineering stuff. I don't necessarily mind it, but I'm starting to feel like I'm being taken advantage of. Is it reasonable for me to ask for a raise? Or do I go somewhere else?

How do you feel about your job?
