Do you think you can get great work out of it?

Yeah I have to agree, better to leave right away. The reason I was asking about whether you can get great work out of it is because I’ve worked in hell situations to get great experience...depending on the clients and where you are in your career it might be worth it. But it likely isn’t. You don’t want to stay more than 3 months, staying for 2 or so while you look for another job is ok. Almost everyone has been screwed one way or another and will understand.

Received a verbal offer from a recruiter congratulating me on clearing the final round. However did not receive a written offer or what the TC package would look like. They have started the right to work checks and the investments / pension plan declaration. Is this normal? Should I send across any documents or wait for the written offer to come through (not even sure if the terms offered would be favourable!!)? Anyone faced a similar situation / have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks!
