Exploding offers from IBs?

2 weeks from the date the contract was prepared. then it takes a couple of days for hr to collect signatures within the firm so realistically you have something around 10 days. Depending on how good/bad you are you can ask hr for additional time, maybe an extra 1 or 2 weeks.
