Has anyone successfully negotiated a title? I was looking for Senior Manager positions but applied for some Mgr positions too. I’m up for promo next year at my current job as well. The current industry offer meets my comp expectation but planning to see if they would bring me in as a senior manager. There isn’t a set hierarchy for the team as of right now as they are building the team and I’d be reporting to a senior executive. Any talking points/tips that might help me negotiate?

I think you can be upfront and say something like "I was looking for Senior Manager roles but applied to this one because the job description is a fit. What would be needed for me to come in as a Senior Manager instead of a manager? ". Other ways to manage is to come in as a manager but negotiate a 6 month review with promotion to senior using that time, with clear deliverables.

My promotion is about 9% in my current salary with the same duties but more responsibilities… I feel I deserve more because my workload increasing with more technical aspects that I need to sharpen. But not sure how to express that or even if a promotion can be rescinded?

Additional Posts in Negotiating Offers

I have read that many companies may provides candidates with a “golden hello” (sign on bonus) when joining the company. I’m not sure whether this is something that depends on the company, the seniority of the role or the industry of the role itself before I could attempt to negotiate this?

Whether it’s via email or phone, HOW do you negotiate pay with a job offer?


I applied to Pinterest and Amazon. I have interviews at both and it's looking positive. I'm a little worried I set the bar too low with my initial response for salary range expectations when I applied. Anyone ever told the recruiter afterwards a higher range and been successful? What might you say to adjust the range? Thoughts?


Hi Fellow Fishes! I need some urgent advice. I had accepted a job offer at a really good company with a good role and team. I am due to start that new job on Monday 30th Aug. Now the thing is I have a better job offer from one of my dream companies-i would be really stupid not to take that offer. So I would be declining the job at the first company just 2 days before i am supposed to start! I know its a good problem to have but a very unpleasant conversation with them. How do i soften the blow?

I had a recruiter screening call that went well last Wednesday. He said I would hear something back in 24 - 48 hours. I sent a thank you email on Thursday morning and he said he enjoyed our conversation and my profile was submitted for review.

Should I be more patient or send a follow up? If so, what should I say?


What's the best way to ask for a pay raise?

When I was headhunted for the job, ESG was a relatively new concept and too few companies hire for related positions. I didn't find any salary range from Glassdoor or anywhere so I had no idea. My fault was I did not ask the HR and just gave my asking salary. When I saw a similar post from my company (I was already hired that time), they were already including the pay range and I realized mine was way below. I'm already 2.8 yrs in the role.


Job offer - Marketing Program Manager $85k…national avg per Glassdoor and LinkedIn is $95-$102k…recruiter says offer is close to top of range and cant offer more to meet my researched info. Not sure what else to go back with or just accept.

How do you deal with counter offers? I have an offer to join a larger tech company in a more senior role, with bonus and RSUs that my current start up can’t match. But my current company want me to stay. They offered an increased base salary which is still below the new offer and I went back and said no, so they might increase. This only came about by me exploring a headhunt approach after being underpaid by my current company for the time I’ve been here . Would you hear them out or just leave?


Weighing/negotiating offer to stay in current role or jump - wwyd?

Current base $150k

Offer $190k

Equity $40k

Pros - wlb, career growth potential
Cons - offer seems a bit low given unvested at current company


PwC What’s the better offer? I’m currently an associate at Mercer in Seattle making 115k with a 10% target, but considering an offer in NYC at PWC as senior associate at 140k with a 15%ish target. Also been at current company for only 9 months. Is it worth it to make that transition so early?


Hi! I have an offer internally within my current org for a level above my current paygrade and they are pushing me to sign the offer. I’m actually waiting to hear back from FAANG(might take 2 weeks from here on). I’m really confused on how I could keep my current internal offer in the loop while I wait for my faang interview results? I don’t want to sign up internally and then later if faang works out I would have to say no to these internal folks..

Is it generally common for Big 4 to try to get you to join a level lower?
