I am interviewing for a new IT Manager position. I started putting out soft feelers and then hit the hunt harder. The problem: I have one offer and need to give an answer by next Wednesday. I have two other opportunities that are in final steps but probably won’t have offers by next Wednesday. Both of the other offers will be higher pay but clearly are uncertain for offers. Do I accept the offer I have, which is a good one or wait for the other two to finalize and possibly miss out altogether?

Just go with a offer you think is good unless you wana wait for other offers.

What if I tell you the difference in pay is $15-25k more for the other two positions that are currently unknown.

Offered job is $95k, one was posted at $120k, and the other recruiter told me it would substantially higher than $95k which I assume is ~$110k.

I’m not all about the money but that could be a 15-26% pay difference from one decision t ok another. At $95k that’s 24% more than my current salary.

Hiring manager sends me an email with only standard benefits, no bonus, etc. Are these red flags?

Can anyone here familiar with FDM Group shed more light on their contracts and operations? All I know about them is that their pay is grossly under market value even as a junior developer in training. Also you are locked into a 2 year contract in which you have to pay them should you leave for a higher paying job for example.

Does this group also have a non-compete which prevents you from working a second job should you need more money?
