Most agencies I’ve worked at want a response within 3 business days. Good luck, OP.

A week max! In my experience 2-3 days. The longer you go the more likely you’ll come to a “no.” And the team knows that if you aren’t engaging w the offer within 48 or so hours that means you are looking for something better, and outside of them. Time kills all deals.

A week.

Hi Fishes,

I'm currently in talk of joining ZS Associates, with ~5 YE from industry (healthcare/life science) and 7+ YE in total. It sounds from the recruiter that it's
more likely to come in as an AC first, not a C unless proven otherwise during the interviews. Should I even consider this opportunity since it might be a 'step-down’ from my current position, and might not look as good in my resume? Is it true levels at ZS are higher than other firms, MBB, B4, T2?

How do you evaluate things like “culture” in a law firm interview?

Hi! I would really appreciate your help and professional POV.
I recently received a job offer at a new company (!!) but I'm only 6 weeks away from being fully vested at my current company (which has a policy where you need to make it to three years or you don't get to keep any of the company's contributions).
Is it worthwhile telling this to the HR team so I could get a delayed start date at the new company? Or is that a no no?
The companies are a part of two different holding companies btw.

Would you find it too much if a candidate asks for 10k more than what he was offered at first?

They are really interested in my profile. I was interested in the work so I asked the recruiter how much would I be paid and she said 60k. I feel like I'm stuck because it's a really good offer considering my skills and experience but I'm afraid if I start negociating and ask for more, it would be considered rude. Any opinion?

It’s incredibly demotivating and I went from wanting to do more to just doing the bare minimum. Is quitting the only option here?
