I have recieved an offer. I'm expected to accept by signing it by next week. Can I still explore other options, and if I get a better offer how to decline the previous one?

Yes you can. Just call the HR and you got a better offer. Either they will match it or will be fine you going to other company.

Hello Fishes,

Need some suggestions..!!!

I got an opportunity with John Deere as a 'Technical Information Specialist'
Offer - 11.5 lpa, and joining in 15 days
In discussion with other company they said the same around 11.5lpa but process is taking time.

Also i have an offer of 9 lpa

My current is 6.5 lpa

Experience 5.6 years, I am a Mechanical Engineer worked with tier 1 company.

Can anyone suggest me, w.r.t. market value or anything?
They said that 11.5 is last

Thank You.

For example.. I had an associate, who claims to have a counter offer of 38LPA and is not ok to share the offer letter as well....

I got into thinking and what to ask u guys... Is there any validation mechanism?

Hi Fishes,

Just would like to know the time interval Between revoking the resignation and resigning again in Publicis Sapient. Is there any mandate time we need to stay in company once we revoke the offer. I am in a toxic team and resigning due to that. If I get release, I might revoke again. But just wanted to know if I have to wait for few months to resign again if I get a good opportunity.
