How long should it typically take for a company/agency to send over an offer after they’ve asked you for your compensation details? I can’t tell if I’m being ghosted or they’re just getting their ducks in rows. 😅

If there’s a holding company involved it could take weeks. Sit tight and try not to panic!

Thank you! 🦆🦆

I once waited a week and another I got a verbal and didn’t get papers for three weeks which felt insane but it was over the holidays and the company was receiving a new major investor but I agree with the two days as standard. Don’t panic if it takes longer. It’s socially acceptable imo to follow up after 4 days if you haven’t heard anything just to make sure.

It’s rare for a company to say yes we want you, name your price and then not follow through with the written. The one that took the longest was because my asking price was higher than they budgeted so they were trying to get approval to add me to a higher quarterly bonus tier. Time can sometimes mean the recruiter is trying to negotiate a better deal for you! 🤗

I’m currently on 2 months without an offer in hand. They initially reached out to me too, as I haven’t been actively searching.

I had Verbal confirmation last week they still wanted me, but hiring freeze continues. I decided to just leave it be, and if they want me after their hiring freeze is over, I’ll just come with a higher figure. Idk how else you are supposed to handle this stuff.
