After about 6 interviews with a big MNC that included an IQ test and a personality/behavioral assessment with some sort of shrink, the MNC extended a "verbal" offer, complete with pay, PTO and benefits structuring. Based on this, I turned down two other offers from smaller companies. Two days later, MNC informs my recruiter that they've run into funding issues regarding my specific position so they're unable to extend a formal offer letter. I was first irritated that such a huge shop will go headhunting without first securing the funds and after making me jump thru so many hoops, and reassuring me I was safe to consider them provisional employers (turning down other offers). I've since moved on.
Fast forward a month later, they're back, and whispering sweet nothings. I already have a gig I'm quite happy with. I should mention however that this MNC has a very unique niche of the finance market and offers experience and training I will almost certainly not get anywhere else and working for them (prior to their SNAFU) and getting that training/experience was a dream.
Would I be daft to consider them at this point, having been burnt by them once on what seemed to be a no-brainer?
