Any tips on negotiating a salary offer? Trying to negotiate up by $5k. I’ve tried negotiating at other companies and am often hit with “that’s as high as we can go”

Go $10k over as a counter and see what they come back with, keep going back and forth till you get as close as you can to that $5k

Agree with VP1 - Or you can ask for a sign on bonus - admittedly it’s a one time infusion of $5k upon starting vs $5k a year in your salary, but often companies are amenable to that.

I just had to do this and when they wouldn’t budge on the salary, I asked for a sign on bonus and they agreed. My first time negotiating my salary ever in my life so I was pretty pleased.

I am going to a smaller firm and already their starting salary for an Associate role in HR is more then what I’m making as a Senior now but the sign on bonus was small, just enough to put me where I wanted to be comp wise. It doesn’t hurt to ask!

EY I got an offer: 140K & no bonus for the Manager, Architect (Remote - Medium COL) in Audit (Not Consulting). Looks like that is the best they could do. Based on my research by going through the levels and glassdoor, I was expecting in 160K -180K Range. Do you think my research numbers are off? Is that offer reasonable? or lowball given the current market? Please suggest. Thank you. Deloitte KPMG

I'm currently working as an electrical designer in the MEP industry. I really don't like it and I'm working towards a career change which I'm actively applying for and getting certified etc. However, it's been a slow process and I'm currently underpaid where I am so would it be wise to make a lateral move to another MEP firm simply because they offer me more money while I still look for a different job separate from this field? Or just tough it out?

I recently got a job offer from a company I used to work for that has a great work/life balance and culture but has a slower track to get promoted. My current employer has a not great work/life balance but it’s much easier to get promoted. Currently 5 years into my career currently bouncing between a project lead and a discipline manager… it’s a decent pay bump- 30%. But is it worth giving up the future potential advancements ?

Can anyone tell me whats the median salary for Functional Safety Engineer? I had an offer for 140k (it was a 6 month contract position though).

I am not expecting them to match or put in an offer close to that amount, but just wanted to get an estimate

Hello Fishes,

I have 2 offers in hand currently -
1. CGI - 25LPA +1L JB
2. Neev systems - 23LPA (5%VP)

Neev systems is ready to negotiate it with CGI. And both companies have their own benefits.

Neev's hike is good compared to CGI(almost double) & CGI have some additional perks like cab facility, Creche allowance, mobile, internet bills reimbursements and additional 5% shares.

Both might have similar WLB (12-9pm).

My DOJ is tomorrow, unable to decide between them. Pls help me!!
