After a couple rounds of interviews, a company has offered me a position and asked me to come in to fill out the paperwork.
I was quite OK with the offer, but have come to learn (from friends who have spoken with previous employees of the company) that the company's culture is bad and there are a lot of bad practices.
They are asking for a two-year commitment (if I don't stay for two years I will have to pay a huge amount). I was comfortable with this situation until I found out about all the negativity.
How can I professionally decline the offer?
I followed this link - How to decline a job offer in writing
Although my situation and point of concerns are somehow different from this, and they are as follows -
- The above link is only explaining about rejecting the offer but my thing is little different. They started the hiring process when I told them that I was looking for a job change - they instantiated the process.
- Saying "NO" is easy for me at this stage, but being in the industry I want to make it little more professional. If in the future I come across the HR or technical persons involved during the process, then this won't affect me at that time.
- What are the points I can mention for rejecting the offer, as I don't want to directly raise pointers at their bad practices involved which make me to think about this.
