It never hurts to counter. All they can say is no. Them saying no is. To taking away the offer. Or they could come up a couple thousand.

Do you think they’d actually take the offer away? That seems like such a red flag

You can also say something along the lines of "very excited about the opportunity but we're hoping for a starting salary closer to 70k. Is there anything they can do to bring the offer closer?"

That can allow them a way to introduce sign on bonuses or other incentives. Or to just adjust the offer. Or if they can't, they can say so without risking the offer.

Good luck!

If you notice that a junior associate on your team has over-billed, how would you handle it? I don’t want to get them in trouble, but noticed that they billed extremely high numbers even though I was doing all they work on the deal and they completely disappeared other than for client conference calls. Certain things that they billed for on the final invoice, I alone handled and never asked them to do. Appreciate any advice. I’m a mid-level in case it helps for context.
