Got a slightly low offer on a job I interviewed for. Is it just generally accepted that offers have some wiggle room to negotiate? Would be happy with another 10-15k.

Don't ask don't get. Always negotiate.

Yup. And if they retract your offer after asking, it wasn't the job for you!!

External. For some extra context, the new role is a step up in responsibility, but I also had a look at benefits and things like health insurance, 401k etc. are better quality and also cheaper at my current firm. I would want the pay bump to account for both of those.

Always negotiate. I moved roles about a year and a half ago from another BB. My salary was initially quoted $10k lower, I asked for more and was given what I asked after a day's turnaround.

What if it was internal?

They won't retract a job offer because you ask for more. That literally has never happened in the history of the world.

Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

Scheduled for 3rd final interview this morning via zoom, with Sr. HR; I've loved everyone I've spoken to so far. But I sat on the call for 15 minutes as a grace period until I finally reached out to the recruiter. Heard back that something came up last night and could we reschedule.

How big of a red flag is this? I def feel I'm a top candidate for the direct manager but this is their head of the department who couldn't delegate to reschedule or bother to join for 5 mins.

Candidates dont even trust sometimes that we are from technical team and they think we are some HR asking them if they are looking for a job.
