I've been interviewing for multiple opportunities. There are 3 that I am particularly interested in. I have a verbal offer from my #3, and am expecting offers from my top 2 choices soon. #3 wants an answer asap. Do I say yes, and walk it back if #1 or #2 come through? Do I roll the dice and say no, with no guarantee that I get the other offers?

When you compare #3 and your current firm, would you rather leave or stay? Also, ask them for the written offer, don’t respond to a verbal.

Yep, you should be responding to something in writing or else how do you know what you're actually agreeing to.

Maybe if you request a written offer and time to review it you might be able to buy a little time for the others

I had my first few rounds of Technical interview at Accenture couple of days back.
In today's HR interview, the HR tells me that we can't proceed with my interview since the amount of CTC they've fixed for my level (Level 11) is lesser than what I'm already earning.
During the pre interview round, the HR had offered me my expected CTC.
I don't understand why someone would do that.

Hey All,

Wanted thoughts on this situation. I accepted an offer (154k cash + 18k equity a year) from Apple in Austin start mid Oct = 172k TC in Austin.

Chime reached out and I interviewed. I received an offer for 150k base + 10% bonus (165k total cash) + RSUs over 4 years (330k over 4 year) = 247k remote NY

I’m torn - FAANG on resume vs Pre IPO. Austin vs Remote (from NY would relocate with Wife). Wish chime was more $ and it would be easier.
