ADVICE: Should I accept and possibly renege an offer from a regional firm in the top 20, if I’m interviewing an advisory role at a top 8 firm?

I’d start at the regional firm in June. Thoughts?

June is far enough away that I don’t think accepting and then reneging would be the worst offense

I haven’t signed the offer yet, but I’m expecting the interview process for the advisory role to take quite a bit of time.

With that in mind, would it be a blackball-able offense to accept and sign the offer, and bail if I get lucky with the advisory role? Or should I simply decline the offer at the regional firm outright and not waste their time?

Why not ask for time to respond to the offer until you have had all of your interviews. What if you don’t get the other job? What if you don’t want it? Are you deciding which job based on rankings alone? If so, that is not a smart move at all

Do what’s best for you. Companies don’t really care about you. You gotta look out for yourself

@Partner 1: I’ve been extended quite a bit of rope with the regional firm. Not sure how much more they’re willing to give.

The advisory job looks good on paper. But who’s to say I’d like any of the two jobs?

I’m deciding on what job I want based on what I know, not rankings.

The only risks I see for now is either: Accepting the offer, reneging, then going with the advisory role, and ultimately burning bridges with the regional firm, or;

Declining the offer from the regional firm and rolling the dice.

I accepted an offer from IB, tried to negotiate salary afterwards, and ended up reneging it to stay in my current role. Still have a good relationship with my contact at the IB and was even told to reach out if anything changed. As long as you’re honest, people generally understand that you need to do what’s best for you. My advice would be to accept.

Hi everyone, I’m having trouble pivoting from SDR/AE into CSM (customer success management) in tech. My former role was titled Relationship Manager and I fulfilled the duties of both AE and CSM.

Hi fishes, I have been on a project since 1 year right out of college. Scatter plot and reviews from my project manager are good and I feel I can continue with this project for a year more. But there is very limited learning (almost stagnant) which is project specific and WLB is also very good. So should I leave this project and search for a different one. Or do I need to use this time to upskill for a developer related role. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
