You can always negotiate but they can also say no

You could just ask and see what they will say. They need people now so may bump up the current offer a little bit. I recently negotiated with one of the big4 without other offers. They did increase my signing bonus

like

You should always expect to get more on the bonus but the base is usually tougher to get bumped up as it will cost them more in future raises. You can ask but youll have better luck with the bonus
