I think this falls under the “it’s always something” column.
There have always been rumors that this is how some firms cold offer. They then claim, hey, he never accepted our offer.
I do not think it has anything to do with a cold offer but rather just wanting to know if there are any “fine print” surprises.
We heard that one firm unexpectedly upped their salaries by $10K (one report said $15K). I read somewhere on TLS that one firm left the salary TBD. At this point all the firm’s delay accomplishes is fuel unnecessary questions.
It took my firm weeks to send my letter. Fairly sure it's just because sending out offer letters was recruiting's lowest priority at that time.
