How bad is it to renege on an accepted job offer? A new offer came in at a 33% higher tc, this is a senior manager level role. Concerned about reputational impact especially at this level and this cyber industry. Is there anyone who has actually reneged a job offer and can speak to the their personal experience?

What’s the actual comp. 33% isn’t much on say 70k in the long run. But if it’s on like 150k, burn the bridge baby.

I reneged on an offer at a company where I had a strong network. The only person mad at me was the recruiter, everyone else understood that money talks. And it ended up a couple months later half of that team left to go work elsewhere. So had I joined that company, the whole team I would've wanted to work with would've been gone anyways. To this day I'm still well connected with them. Jobs are fluid, as long as you're personable and kind to the people that matter, anyone worth a damn will understand that we do what we do to get paid. If there is a better offer, take it.

I did this on a job early in my career and nobody was really mad. People understand. Sometimes the ppl involved at the company is mad at itself for not being competitive enough. Usually never at you.

More to an offer than TC. Work life balance, work itself, people, location, travel, etc. I’ve turned down more than 33% more to stay in a good situation or avoid one that I thought wasn’t the right fit. But if all else is equal - no issue at all in turning down an already accepted offer. Even if TC was same and it was just a better fit.

You need to be selfish sometimes

I have a brief resume gap from near the beginning of covid but have been at a new employer for >1 year. I’ve been asked about said gap during in-house interviews, but it’s generally been cursory and I give the explanation agreed upon by former employer. Was pressed a bit harder recently by being asked “will x former employer confirm [the story]?” Is this in and of itself a bad sign? Are they trying to catch a lie?
