Got an offer from a company with OK benefits. I am also in the interview process for another company with much better benefits, work culture, work-life balance and possibility 5-10k more pay. Should I wait it out to see how it goes or take the offer?

Can you ask the better company if they will expedite the process? Sometimes telling them you have another offer will allow them to truly evaluate if they’ll pursue you or not

Hard to say honestly. But I think the hiring manager for the company I got an offer for is more chill. But I'll continue the interview process for the 2nd company and see where it takes me for now.

You need to see the second process through. Request an indication of when you'll likely hear back from them by. Reiterate that you're really interested in the role and would like to see the process through. Go back to the first offer and let them know you're just considering your options and will provide a response by x date. I'd suggest this isn't much longer than 2 weeks though especially if they have already given you a written offer. Once you have both offers in you can fully review the comp and benefits for each and negotiate. I've always been able to negotiate increases using this method to secure the role I want.

Thanks! I said I'll accept the offer over phone call. But I haven't signed the letter yet. They also need 3-4 weeks for background check, etc. Is it too late to ask for more time to consider my options?

Is the pay at least 20% more than your current salary? The inflation rate is at 9%, so even if it’s 20% more than you’re making, factor that into your calculations. My answer: no, hold out for more money

Base is only 14% higher.. but with bonus it's 22% higher than current salary.

You should continue with the interview process. The work culture and work-life balance are all green flags for me. Plus the possibility of a salary increase. This is a rare opportunity. Better take it.

Sounds good. Thank you! I just hope it doesn't put my offer for the 1st company at risk if I don't sign off the offer in the next 1-2 weeks.

Can you just accept and reneg if you have to? Not ideal, but it’s not the worst thing in the world either. It’s just business after all.

Did you negotiate the first offer yet? That can help drag the process out a few days, possibly enough time that you might actually get an offer from the second company.

I would anticipate at least 95k with 10% bonus in this market

Having been in your shoes 2 months back, and the number of opps out there I’d respectfully decline and start applying again while waiting for your #1. Sounds like the offer in hand is a dime a dozen, you can find another like role if needed. Don’t settle!

What do you do when you realize accepting that promotion was a wrong decision? You had a lower income (but that you could live ok - without excesses) and not much recognition but peace and complete autonomy over your decisions in the business. On the opposite now, you may make some more money but you have 24/7 headaches, triple of the workload, anxiety, insomnia, a very arrogant manager and little to no indecency. How do you find peace to forgive yourself? How do you cope with that feeling?
