I accepted an offer from Morgan Stanley about 3 weeks ago and still haven’t received my offer letter. My recruiter followed up with me last Wednesday and said it was going through approvals. Should I be concerned at this time? Or is this wait normal? Morgan Stanley

For future reference, don’t accept a verbal offer. Thank them for the interview process and say you’re excited to see the offer letter. Have to keep some leverage on your side to get what you want, even if it’s just a quicker process.

Update: I received my letter this past week. Should be starting the next steps in the process this week.

It’s on the compliance side.

I did internal mobility recently and it was also a mess. HR was the main issue, not the team from my experience

Thats sad. This upcoming week will be 4 weeks since I accepted. This wait has been really bad. At this point, if I am to receive it this week, It may take another month just for me to start.

Have they done the background check yet? The last one we did (end of 2021)!took 4 weeks for background check to clear

Nah i havent, I havent received my offer letter yet.

Just remember the background check takes 3-4 weeks too.

Which strategy is better?

#1 - The first tactic I learned for salary negotiation is to give them a # and act like you will walk away if it's not met. I forget the details, but something like even if they give you a lower #, you still stick to your #.

#2 - You can also give them a # and they may come back with a lower # and you can take it or leave it.

#3 - A new coach told me about giving a range. He said if you give them a #, they may flat out say no.

Can't they say no to any of these?
