You will burn that bridge if you already accepted and then decline. Push out the offer date. I’m a recruiter. If they say you must give answer by this time, is that the culture you want to work with? I always allow candidates to take time in making decisions. Now if it’s a month...I’m already looking for backups.

You could get blacklisted from applying to that company in the future. It’ll be a burned bridge.

I am okay to burn the bridge with that company. Was asking more for legal implications ...

C1 you dont know that, some people sign an actual contract which does have legal implications, something only an attorney can advise on....
