How much time does BCG give for accepting an offer? Can it be extended by a few days --- say a week?
Time to accept offer
Yes, that should be fine. There are obviously specific instances where the situation may change, but the office would let you know in that case.
Their interest and yours are aligned: an 7nhappy employee wont do well or stick around.
PS: Congrats on the offer
If you can make a good reason why you want to extend, there shouldn't be a problem extending. BCG doesn't want to lose a potential employee they invested a lot of money in hiring because the person couldn't decide whether to accept the offer a few days earlier.
A few days is fine, however, be careful with extending for a longer time since it demonstrates a lack of commitment
Congrats on the offer! You are currently in my goal position. Any tips on the BCG interview process? Which country did you apply in? Any tips would be great--congrats again!
