Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

I got the verbal offer last week from the recruiter. We talked compensation and location, and said the letter would be ready after meeting with the HC. After reading some of the posts about the HC it makes me believe that the offer is not nearly as guaranteed as communicated. Is there anything I can do on my end now? Is HC difficult to get through/vary by position? I believe I head in there tomorrow.
