Lateral: being strung along?
Want to keep this short: interviewed with a BB 5 months ago. did 12 interviews (2 people per interview, met the whole team). And then got the news I would receive an offer, but at the last check with HR the headcount was cancelled. Was told that when new headcount would be available i'd get an offer, but it has been 5 months. Have had some contact since then and the news was unfortunately negative regarding the headcount.
This really would be the ideal bank/team/opportunity for me so would love to hear anyone who has had similar experiences, as I am about to receive another offer which is better than my current bank but worse than the first offer. Waiting for this offer however would mean rejecting the new offer, so somewhat of a risky move. Like the new offer but that would mean giving up on the (potential) first offer which would really sting.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? Would love to hear your feedback!
