Got an incredible opportunity with a base which was higher than the range I provided the recruiter initially. Over the moon with the offer but is it still worth it to negotiate?

Yes

Yes!!!

Do it! But since the offer is already well above what you hoped for, dont counter too high and risk giving a bad taste in their mouth

Not everything needs to be negotiated. If it works as-is, take it!

Bad advice. There is literally no harm in negotiating. You’re just leaving potential money on the table.

Thanks everyone for your feedback! I’m curious how you might approach the negotiation, since they’ll be aware the offer is above the range I provided. Basing a higher comp number on a better sense of responsibilities gained through the process is one thought that comes to mind, would love to see any other insights though!

You can just say that market rate is XX or based on the new information gleaned from the interview, the set of responsibilities means YY. I would generally go for a higher base and ask for a larger signing bonus and see what sticks! There’s always room for negotiation.

Other things outside of comp to negotiate could be PTO days, pushing back your start date so you can take time off before you start the job, title etc. the negotiation doesn’t need to just be $ (although $$$ certainly helps)

Yes. I got an offer for 120k (I was making $76k at the time) and I negotiated for $140k. It can always get better lol. In retrospect I’d be pissed making only $120k 😅

Gonna say the harsh truth. Part of the issue with these salaries is the configuration of these cohorts…For example design should NOT be lumped in with Product Managers. Working on customer facing, revenue producing Products should NOT be lumped in with internal Products. That’s why these numbers are dragged down. In real Product orgs there are very big gaps in comp between the different types of roles and that is okay.

I still have an upcoming interview with the leadership team.

My question is, how much influence does does the 3 interviews have in swaying the decision of my candidacy?

I'm also assuming that the senior leadership is definitely one of the major factors too.
