Default Need some advice if I should early quit

Hi all, I'm a fresh grad and would like advice.

Having been job hunt for close to a month, I finally got an offer from company NCS.
So while that company reputation is not that great, and the start date is coming soon (early june)
  1. should I continue to accept new job interviews
  2. will it reflects badly on me if I decided to early quit (eg I am weeks into the job) while I have accepted a new job offer, burning bridges with the company?

If not, should one continue to stay in the company for at least one year?

hey OP, i was also placed in a similar position as you and i withdrew my acceptance a while away from my start date, here are my 2 cents.

you are quite right that it is abit too late in the sense that u literally start in a couple of weeks, but if you have managed to secure another offer already and are leaning towards that direction then go for it. in my view, its better to withdraw before companies begin a tedious process to onboard you for weeks or even months.

if i were you and i was intent on going with another offer, i would check with HR if there is any penalty for withdrawing(unlikely as u have not started) and drop them a email and/or phone call as a courtesy, especially if they have been helpful throughout. make sure to be polite about it and should be generally ok, just try not to leave a bad taste in their mouths.

my final advice to you is at the end of the day, these companies can replace you as and when its convenient for them to do so, so why not take the same approach? ofc, if the company really values and respects you then its your call.

Hi, thanks for getting back to me.

I may have been biased against NCS based on what I have read so far. As mentioned, this is the current and only offer I have had and as all offers does, it comes with a deadline to accept it.
Which is also why I am really at a lost if it will make me looks bad, ie. Accept and signed the contract > Go work at company + accepting new interviews or finding new jobs > if lucky, I got a new offer during the short period I work

If I happen to be doing well at ncs, I would probably not go around accepting interviews or looking for any jobs. Or say, even before my job commences and I found a better one, I will definitely do as what you said.

All in all, my concern is more on after entering into ncs.. and adding on, I doubt there will be any new offers coming for me from now till the mention start date in early june

I was in a similar situation before. Give yourself a couple of months working at ncs. See if you feel comfortable with the environment. Make sure to check your contract about the notice period and penalty for quitting within a certain period.

If you like the environment after a month or two working there, i say go ahead and aim to work at least 6 months and then towards a year and so on. If you do not like it, go ahead and send your resumes out while you are still working under ncs.
