Guys, I have an offer from Simon Kucher 2 weeks back and I have a pending final interview result from Kearney (I just had the interview today). I have been trying to work with HR from Kearney to expedite the process however it seems that they just took longer than I expected (they kept delaying the interview schedules) and now it seems that the partner from Simon Kucher is flustered as I am unable to make the decision on the offer, and I told him that I would reply by today on my decision.
So should I proactively tell him by accepting the offer and cancelling it later if Kearney's offer turns out to be better, or I just ignore the deadline I set myself, and wait for Kearney to get back to me? Of course if he nudges I will reply right away and accept the offer, but I am worried that the partner will cancel the offer as I am not sticking to the deadline that I actually set myself.
Update: Kearney informed me that they will get back to me tomorrow.
