Recent promotion at a smaller boutique, handling long-term engagements. Boss is now leaving the company making me the only person on the engagements. Prior to any of this happening, I was already planning my next move and once I receive an offer from any of the firms I’m considering, the plan was to take it. Should I be worried about putting my current firm in a tough position by leaving a gap in the organization?

You should be raising the issue that they need to either promote you or backfill the boss. That way you have provided a warning.

That’s a them problem not a you problem. You’re leaving for some reason that they haven’t addressed. They should be prepared for this outcome.

I want such nice employees. Who put there bosses/firms first before their own lives ❤️

Of course, they are hiring. Everyone is hiring. Demand for employees great, supply limited.

Ask for promotion, let them know you have offers lined up

Given that I just received the promotion in the last few weeks I think I’d have to go with the telling them to backfill for bosses former position option. Wouldn’t want to play the offers lined up card until I actually have one lined up.

They need to plan for turnover, not you. If they do their job and backfill swiftly with capable people, things should be fine. If they try to make you do double duty while they drag their feet, and then things fall apart when you leave, that's on them for failure to act appropriately.
