There's been a delay from HRs of the companies in a similar way. How do I urge them to send me the offer letter without sounding pushy? I had reached out to some of the HRs myself. Would that be too awkward if I accept & back out their offer?

Open ended question: Should I prefer to go for Series A-B funded startups with 30 day notice period or well established companies with 60 day notice period?

Salaries tend to be more or less within the same range, startups paying a bit more. Given the current market, the bigger company seems more stable but the 60 day notice period looks like it will make it harder to switch from there.

What are your thoughts?
