What's the protocol for this?
If I was to sign a contract to work for GKN (a defense aerospace company) and the next day my dream company, Aerospace Corporation, calls me with a job offer, what's the protocol for quitting at GKN? Am I even allowed to? Unfortunately Steven is right in that I will acquire a reputation, and probably a bad one. However, dusty_titus, it would not a be lie to say that AC trumps GKN in every way be it access to classified DoD projects, location, job description and responsibilities. Short of GKN offering me a management/senior position, AC tops them in everything I'm looking for.
