Happens all the time. They won’t risk screwing up a client relationship for a manager. Plus the client lead wouldn’t mind having another friendly at the client. Last thing they want is to poison the client well

Good question Deloitte 1. Still weighing pros/cons. Example: re-build network in new client role(con) but have a broader role than my current (pro). Don’t know how salary/benefits compare to EY..

My counselor just recently left the firm for a client he worked on for two and a half years. He got a title and a pay bump.

Yeah EY won't poach from clients but people definitely leave for clients. Part of the game.

Question 1 - do you want to join the client?

Not so tricky. Very common. Compare benefits and career potential confidentially w client and decide

EY will prefer if you leave for the client because it maintains the relationship because they have alumni among their ranks. As DD1 mentioned, why do you want to jump ship for the client and will you benefit from doing so? For me to leave for a client, the opportunity needs to be too good to pass.
