Recruiter wants to give me a call with an offer (assuming). Can I ask them to send me an official offer letter with comp and give me a week to decide?

Citigroup1 like that happens. Verbal heads if terms, follow up convo with benefits details then a written to sign. No firm generates written offers first.

Asking for in writing isn't unusual, but some companies tend to only give that street verbal acceptance, so people don't shop them around... About time to decide, saying a couple of days is better than a week... Makes it sound like your thinking vs giving the perception you're interviewing at other places (which is fine so long as that was communicated during the interview)

Thanks. What if they don’t send the offer letter, but want my verbal acceptance first? I have other options too and I want to cross check and if needed use this offer letter to increase the offer from another place.

Are you kidding you need to evaluate the offer in full - comp, insurance, vacation, etc. tell them to send the offer so you can evaluate it comprehensively

Oh okay. I was going to preface I went straight after undergrad so don't know and was presuming - I've had a mentor share though to say you'd want to evaluate offer in whole but disclaimer I've not been in the position. Thanks UBS

What happens if I accept the verbal offer, but by the time I receive the written offer i change my mind. Is it still fine to decline after accepting the verbal offer?

You do it elegantly. It's also 'fine' to reject the written offer elegantly. Don't expect another one.

What level are you UBS
