Unless you’re at MBB and you would permanently burn bridges (I doubt at an associate level you would)

Pick it up and try to stay at least 2 years at new company to address potential optics

Can you choose your start date for the new offer? 2 months is very soon to leave a job. I’d say try and wait at least 6 months (if you can) before making the jump so you don’t burn any bridges. If you can’t wait that long then leave. The money is important lol

Agreed. Leave, if you think there is a long term career progression and if it is aligned to your career goals. Like, tomorrow. I’m from Accenture and believe me, you won’t burn any bridges by doing this.

Just pack up

Leave. The company you’re at now wouldn’t hesitate to fire / lay you off in a second. It’s always just business (on both sides).

Can anyone confirm if you really *need* to add a short stint to a background check?

They may be able to find it someday but are you planning to leave this next company in two months? Probably not…so what does it matter? If anyone asks in the future, “it was a bad culture fit.”

Trying to avoid a similar situation - interviewing for as many roles as possible, before picking one. I'd say speak with the folks who brought you in, tell them about the new offer and your desire to leave - thank them and be sincere in your tone. Leave

Take the money and run

Congrats! Wish I could just get any new job.
What’s the new Compensation?

Burn it 🔥

Business is business, do what’s best for you (probably the money)

Leave!!

I worked in another role and someone did this. She handled it so well, apologetically but resolved that it was an opportunity that she could not pass up. It went well—and no one remembered her name 4 months later. Do it.

HR insight needed 🙏 my boss set a standing weekly meeting with me and I’m often stood up. Sometimes he apologizes later but often not. Sometimes it’s because he has booked another 1-on-1 team meeting over that time (so he saw it in his calendar). Eg: He’s standing me up now even though we’re both in the same small office AND I emailed+slacked earlier to confirm his availability (no answer).
It’s hard to NOT think this is intentional.
What might a professional, healthy response be to this?
