Ethics: Turning down job offers when you've already agreed | Reply
If you accept a job offer from a company (sign things, turn in papers, signal your intent to join and all that) and then get another job offer from another company, is it right to renege and accept the new offer if it is better? Legally, the first offer was at-will, but how is this considered in the community? Is it common? Would this 100% bar this person from working with the first company? If it's only a tiny bit better, does that matter?


(Totally hypothetical of course)
