Resigning from a Tier2 consulting firm during probation to pursue Tier1 offer - is it ok?

Anonymous A

I had started working for a Tier 2 consulting firm. While still on probation, a better offer from Tier 1 came across. I wanted to know if it is ok to resign from the firm during the probation period. How can the relationship be ended on good terms.

Hi,

  1. It's totally fine to resign, just explain openly the situation
  2. To be honest - you can't ruin any relationship since you don't yet have any relationships in your first week.
  3. Resigning seems a tough choice if it is your first job. But in a couple of years, you will not even remember that moment. Just do it
