You’re fully entitled to ask. They want you so you can set the expectations so you can make the decision. That said the other offerer should be flexible.

I delayed a month whilst I evaluated offers. General principle is 14 days acceptable. But push EY

I’ve been waiting 3 weeks for an EY contract after getting a verbal offer, really taking its time…

like

and have you recieved the contract yet? or still waiting. also was it just a verbal offer or also on mail saying offer has been approved. thanks

Definitely follow up. I would even suggest calling them directly to get a response instead of waiting for an email.

like

do you think that email confirmation with offer details and the phrase "your offer has been approved" should mean that its final and I dont need to worry about receiving contract in time? Just don't want to be left without any offer. cheers

Again, I'd just follow up on that email and ask if contract is on it's way as you want to feel comfortable turning down the other offer knowing the conditions of your contract. It's a very reasonable thing to ask.

Ask when contract is avsilable

Wait the written contract then reject the other offer.

I'd follow up again, no matter if the HR person gets pissed - ultimately they have to answer to hiring manager too, who certainly wouldn't be all too pleased losing a candidate over HR being too slow. Plus it's highly likely they are just a bit stressed, still the end of holiday season and they might be understaffed. I was in a similar situation a few weeks back, did a few follow ups after the verbal offer because I had another offer on the table and it was fine, they were very understanding and hurried up 😁
