Sleezeball question here, and I feel dirty for asking but I’m curious…

If you plan on leaving a consulting firm and already have a start date for another position, what prevents you (besides your conscience) from staying on the bench until you get fired? It seems all too easy to just bill the bench and act like you were searching for another role while already starting at the other company.

What kind of options do firms have to deter their employees from doing this?

I feel like public accounting isn’t my calling, but I’m good at it and could probably make partner one day. How does one decide if they should explore other companies/roles and potentially find happiness/alignment in the role or just send it and stay in public accounting? I struggle because on paper industry doesn’t interest me since I’m a people person and not really a number cruncher.
