Hi everyone! If I get 2 offers for 2 different jobs, and I accept one of them, should I refuse the other one right away, or wait for a while just in case?

If you've signed the offer letter, I don't see any reason to keep the other company hanging around. I imagine they would start pressing you for an answer soon enough anyway.


Why would you do that? Put yourself in that person's shoes that is waiting for you a week, 2 or more. Do you think if you leave then hanging they would ever want to hire you? Always leave an open door you never know when you gonna need it.


Just in case the offer you accepted gets rescinded


Let the other company know you need more time, give them a date when you’ll get back to them, just in case your existing offer falls through (It’s volatile environment and you need to reduce risk - companies are doing the it). You can always gain more time by asking for more $$$.


Ask the 2md company for extra time to get back to them

Hey Fishes,
Been working at D India as a Manager (Not USI) for past few months.
Ask me anything as there are very few reviews available online.
To clear few misconceptions
1. Global projects are available here
2. They've started mentioning Bonus, Gratuity amount etc in offer letter
3. Work life balance depends on Project and managers you work with
4. Inside opportunities if you're the creamy layer
5. PF amount in offer letter is the total deduction and not just company's contri

Seeing the wave of layoffs and hiring freezes being announced is sad for impacted employers but it will do good for the industry as a whole. This will force companies to prioritize, become more efficient and will cool wage inflation which has been out of control in tech.
