Citadel revoked offer

I declined my Google offer and decided to join Citadel. However, I was just told my Citadel offer was revoked. HR implied it was their new CTO Umesh Subramanian and there was nothing he could do. I am not sure if Google can reconsider me since they sounded very unhappy when I declined their offer and told them I was going to join another company. What can I do? No other offers and didn't plan to interview. The CTO ruined my life though we didn't even meet!

      A person chooses the less virtuous partner. They are cheated on and dumped by less virtuous partner. C'est la vie.

      Yeah because Google is such a virtuous company? Too much kool-aid in the micro kitchen?

      Lol, Citadel is not a random mom and pops shop, it's a solid top tier hedge fund and can easily beat googl comp

    Dude, just write to google recruiter, say circumstances changed (no need to go into details) and you want to work for G!

    Google's HC decision to hire you is good for a year

    Usually the offer is valid for 6 months - 1 year. You can approach the HR and say that you have changed your mind, All the best

      I never knew that Google's offers can be open for 6 months to a year... that's awesome. so what does it really mean then? that means that they're not going to ask you whether you accept it or not they will just extend the offer and you can go ahead and do whatever you want and then six months later you can go back to them and say Yes I want the job now.. and Google will be welcoming you in and say no more interviews needed?

      The recruiter informed that as long as I can find a team they can extend an offer. I've not asked more details as I accepted the offer eventually.

    Unless you reneged on Google or did something shitty you should be fine

  • You always accept an offer, get joining letter then reject all other offers

    Ask. You’re not loosing anything by asking.

    Did you negotiate with G? If so you may find you're back at the original non-negotiated offer.

      Is this guaranteed to happen?

    The reality is, when you go back to google you’re not in the same bargaining position that you were previously because you showed your hand. That said, it’s all how you frame it to them. “This showed me that all of the hesitancy I had in moving forward with Citadel was demonstrated. Given where I am at in my career/life it was challenging to turn down that level of compensation initially but my passion lies with going to a real technology company vs a cutthroat finance firm.” If google doesn’t have anything, start your search again but tell that same story to the firms that as why you are still looking.

    Looks shady and possibly should stay away from this place. Share your offer
