Is it fine to decline an offer just 1 week before joining date. They were waiting for 3 months for my notice period with current firm to be over. Now I found a better offer.

No, it’s awful and you won’t be burning a bridge, you’ll be nuking it.

That said, do what’s best for yourself.

Deloitte asks for 3 months notice? 🤔

Interesting and good to know, I had no idea. Seems like 3 months would feel like a lifetime.

Unless you were very senior there’s no way I’d wait 3 months for you in the first place. Go in peace.

Lol, I was just kidding. 😂

I dont want to get blacklisted either! Anything I can do in those regards?

Also, how do I tell the HR? Which might ease things a bit and end politely. I am afraid if I call, they are going to be mad and rant

Been here for almost 1yr but my boss (who’s the GC) skips all formal reviews. I was supposed to have quarterly official checkins but none so far. Looks like he thinks it’s just a waste of time b/c he gives immediate work feedback. I get the same amount of small “cash bonus” each quarter w/o a review. Should I formally request a feedback around my 1st anniversary? Is that weird or overstepping?

It’s looking like my job is gonna start asking us to return to the office. We have an open office plan and before we wfh FT I would save all my work for my telework days bc I can’t get shit done in the office. I’m having major anxiety about them making this decision. I know I’m not alone that people don’t want to return to the office. My ADHD and the open office just makes working from the office a nightmare and I’m feeling really nervous and kind of resentful.
