I left one at 9 mos and I did have a sign on bonus. And they let me keep it, too. No bad blood; it was obvious all around that it was a poor fit. I was very professional and clear about what my issues were and possible solutions, and included exiting as one of those options.

Yeah it was not good. Still baffles me how that guy wasn’t immediately terminated.

I left at 5 months

Hi Guys, recently I received offers from 1. CTS & 2. EY GDS. EY offer is way lesser than my 1st offer from CTS, citing my low current salary. So, I haven't accepted the EY offer yet in the hope that it will be revised. Tech : SAP BW & SAC Planning, YOE 13 yrs, role offer : SCON 3, 26.5 fixed. I believe I should get around 32 fixed & HR is low balling me both on role & salary. Suggest me some strategies to get this offer revised.
