How can I be medically inapt to sign any contract for 2 weeks?

Microsoft made an offer, 7 days to say yes/no, then contract signature (maybe 5 more days).

Waiting for Google final verdict to come (1/2 weeks). Any ideas how to stall things?

MS is cool, but I would still prefer Google!

    Exploding offers are just corporate bullying.

    Ask the MS recruiter for 2 weeks to give an answer since you're working with other organizations.
    If they insist you accept or lose the offer, accept it and if G comes back better, renege with no sympathy

      YES! But wouldn't that blow up any future opportunities with MS ?

    • In a similar situation, wouldn’t that burn bridges with that company?

      There's a chance it would if you end up with the same recruiter in the future but in reality, it is probably no different from rejecting the offer outright

    Just ask a question about the offer on the 7th day. The HR will take 2-3 days to get back. Then ask about starting date and team and the need for a vacation because you want to visit family before joining. Keep delaying, it’s easy πŸ˜‰
