- New sv1OPIf I don't crack the interviews that I have lined up then I don't have a choice but to take this one. But any issues with service now or the position ?
- SN has bad culture and work environment. No career progression, bad managers who abuse power and authority, you will be put on PIP for the smallest and stupidest reasons like not attending a meeting, if a Director doesn’t personally like you then you will be put on noticed. They will find the smallest things to manage you out. Lots of bad managers constantly micro managing. I heard the IT dept is the worse but other groups are just as bad. If you are desperate then just take the offer and leave after you get the offers. They hire just as fast as they fire people. Try to delay SN and let the other companies know you have an offer coming so they will speed up the process on their end.Nov 16 3
- Hi, please some help here. The role is for IC 3. The HR is not giving me enough time to tell my decision. She called me today and gave me one day time to get back with the numbers since they decided to go with me only today. She said her offer is 160k base/ 150k espp over 4 years / 15% bonus. She said once the offer is finalized she will give me only 3 days by which I need to decide. If not I lose the offer and it's declined it seems. I told her that I have other interview commitments and I need to honor them because I lined them up only because the team was hesitant and taking more time decide. She didn't take that quite well and she was like if you think you can sit on this offer and keep shopping around that is not going to happen. She was like if I send you the offer letter by Monday you need to decide 3 days from there otherwise you lose the offer. Don't you think that's unfair ? I have my tech phone screening with Intuit, square tomorrow. And onsite with Fitbit on Friday. Fitbit told me that they can give the decision by Monday. How can I tell Intuit and square to speed up the process and is it true that once an offer letter is given I have to give the decision in 3 days or else the offer is gone. She also said this position needs only green card or US citizen since customers are federal. And that's why they kinda went over with me because I have a green card. This is too much pressure. Can you guys give me thoughts on how to handle the HR at service now and buy more time. I thought usually u can get back with 1 week. Is she lying purposefully for me to accept it.
- Yea that sucks, shitty recruiter forsure. I’d accept for now then and then you have till the 16th to interview and get an offer elsewhere or you can just screw the recruiter over if your feeling is that bad and not join in the end. Bottom line, you can accept the offer for now and change your mind before the start date
