Don’t panic - what’s the worst that happens? They come back and say they can’t up the offer. You will still have an option. Don’t reach out until the recruiter comes back to you, as you don’t want to sound desperate nor fickle minded. Congrats on the job in advance!

Its really a reasonable ask. Employers respect people who know their worth. Getting into a lower salary may just put you different territory - even responsibilities.

Don't stress. You haven't asked for crazy$$$, worst case they'll say they can't increase to 85k and offer stays at $80k.

Recruiters also know that candidates always try to negotiate, so they never throw the high-end of salary range for that job. My guess is that they accept your counter offer. Good luck!

Tell us some numbers: current comp, expected comp, offered comp…

Omg that raise is abysmal

uplifting

It’s not about your individual expenses (rent, utilities, etc.) but your value in the market place. The market is hot right now for talent so they’ll probably be okay with 85K. If the recruiter says no just take the offer as-is if you really like it. Asking for more is an expected part of the process so totally understandable- no need to justify.

Not cpa related, but if anyone is applying to pwc start internship 2021 and you identify as a minority you can "present yourself as a minority" and a recruiter will refer you to a web page to see if you meet this criteria.

If I haven't met the accuracy needed, I've then spent time on the lessons and usually hit the accuracy after. For additional context, aiming for Q47+. I was on a Q45 on a Veritas mock last week.

Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!
