Sticky splitting situation

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Aug 30, 2016 11:14 am

I'm lucky enough to have offers at 2 firms that I cannot decide between yet, so I am hoping to split. One is in NY, the other is in D.C. The problem is that for the D.C. firm, I also have an offer from their NY office that I have no interest working for. The D.C. firm has explicitly told me I can split with their NY office if I want, so I'm scared it will be insulting if I ask the D.C. firm to let me split with another NY firm other than their own. Is this a normal scenario? Has anyone done this? I'm not sure how to approach the situation, and any advice would be appreciated!

It will not be insulting to ask the firm if they could split with another NY firm. Usually the whole point about splitting is to see 2 different firms, not just 2 offices of the same firm. Chill and ask.
