I accepted an offer at a B4 and looking to start in about 3 weeks. A recruiter at big tech reached out for a role that I’m interested in, but the interview loop timeline is about 4-6 weeks. Assuming they give me an offer, should I not even think about it and leave even though I’d barely be at the firm for a month? Let’s assume TC is at least matched.
Advice from PwC fish needed.. I posted a week ago about an offer for an A1 “experienced associate” from PwC -team is digital assurance transparency. Even tho I thought that sounded off, I ended up accepting. My letter just said Associate @ 68k base. Now I have access to People Path & my job level says A2. So is PwC on a cohort model, or not?

My role description has changed quite a bit since I started and I'm now the only colleague with a qualified QA degree in my team.
