Abandon FIRE and embrace lifestyle design.

Build an emergency fund and some capital / passive income and then do whatever you want for work, as long you’ve got health benefits and can cover fixed expenses. Call it Coast FIRE or Barista FIRE, but regular fire is for suckers 😬

Hi Fishes, I need some help.
So I've got the offer letter from Genpact today, but I have to send the required docs and BGV should happen and then in 3-4 days they might send Joining/Appointment letter.
So my doubt is, shall I inform the current Consultancy that I'm rejecting their offer? Or shall I wait till I get the appointment letter from Genpact and then inform the consultancy?
It's already been 15+ days since I've joined the company via consultancy.
PS: I have just joined on 3rd Feb on C2H
