Say you would like 10k more?

like

Every offer is unique, any more details that could corroborate why you should be paid $10k more?

How does it compare to what you currently make, and do they know what you make currently?

Replying asking for $10k more and justify your worth.

Ask for 10k more

Name your price, see if they counter offer?

Ask for $15K more and feel out recruiter. I don’t like email salary negotiations

What level is this for? Say something on the lines on why your experience is an asset and how it aligns with the practice's or firms needs. You could also say that you are expecting another offer which may be higher but this firm is your preference due to culture and people and work you would like to do. But you would appreciate a happy compromise since you have some personal financial goals. Basically give them a happy compromise BS. Good luck!

Call the recruiter to discuss. Not worth it to take lowball salaries in the long run

Ask for $20K move and settle for 10k -15k more

I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.

Does anyone else hate the interviews that you think have gone well, but then you end up being ghosted? I thought I did well because the interviewer told me I would ‘fit right into the team and team culture’ and said ‘keep an eye on your email, we move quickly and you’ll probably hear about next steps in the next few days’. Makes me feel like I am terrible at reading situations (on top of being terrible at interviewing). I hate not knowing what I did wrong and what I should be fixing.
