Hi all! Is anyone here in Underwriting? Just want some thoughts on this as i’ve recently gotten an offer for an Underwriting Associate position and have never done any salary negotiations before. Does it seem unrealistic for my counter offer to be 12k more than the original offer? Considering that the original offer is roughly 8k less than the market salary. Plus i’m also accounting for wiggle room as i’m not expecting them to actually agree with the full 12k counter offer

I countered $10k for my current role and they accepted, should have gone higher. Just do it. If they don’t want to meet in the middle at all it’s probably not the role that’s meant for you anyways. If they withdraw an offer over a counter that’s a sign of the company culture and not a good one.

Thank you so much!

No its not unrealistic. Ask for your rate & go for it.

No it’s not. Especially with no experience. May be 2-3k more.

Just do it

Curious on what you were originally offered?

The client and coworkers were all nice, but I remember being stressed on the project due to limited resources.
