How do you use another offer to negotiate a bigger salary. I have never done this before. It sounds risky. Do you print out the offer and show them?

Honestly in todays economy, if the salary is at least 20% more, which you shouldn’t move for anything less, take it. Unless you LOVE where you are currently. In this game moving around every two years early on is normal

In most places they will match only if : a) they really need you ; b) the policy allows to handle counter offer situation . No one really cares whether you are bluffing or have a real offer . Netflix and some others are exceptions

Most firms will not counter as it sets a bad precedent for an employee to leverage outside offers to maximize salary without the risk of actually leaving the job. Unless you have a unique skillset or would be extremely difficult to replace, it makes more sense to have you leave than pay you to stay. Even if you get your "bump" - you will probably alter the relationship between you and your employer moving forward.

My employer knows I give 0 shits about this company, they say they invest in people but only the labour out on roads and engineers, they don’t give a crap about their office staff like me
Sadly the salary for office staff is much higher than pretty much anywhere else I’ve seen advertised by a good £6k

When I tried this, they made me send them my offer letter to prove it. But they still didn't match it so I left for the other company

You just tell them you have an offer and how much it’s for. It does depend though on if you are prepared to leave or not. I once had this situation and told my company that I had another offer and it was for 20k more than what I was currently on, but that I didn’t necessarily want to leave. They were able to offer me 10k and I stayed for that amount more. But it really depends where you work

I recently did this. I’m in a small company with a niche role. The situation was unique because my team was going through some organizational turmoil and my boss had indicated that she herself did not feel supported to do her job well. I was recruited by a known partner/consultant and slow walked it until I had a written offer. So I asked her, “how are you feeling about the stability/longevity of our team?” She said she had some concerns. I told her that I had received the offer and really wanted to stay, but that I had some ideas of how to stabilize the team etc. I asked her if she would consider countering the offer. She said yes, we looked at the budget and strategic plan together. I went from Director to VP with a 25% raise. We have had multiple meetings on revamping the strategic plan but ultimately our board is up to the same old shenanigans and we still don’t feel supported.

My question was more about negotiating higher pay at a new job, not necessarily to stay at my old one. Sorry if I was unclear. But how would I negotiate with multiple job offers

Thanks, thats a good idea. I think I will use the tuition reimbursement at my current job to negotiate my job offer, since they will most likely want me to get a license.

Do I push it any further?

Received an offer verbally from a company that is a big jump in salary from where I am now. I negotiated 10K extra in base, and 5K extra in bonus. Currently making 125K base, 30K bonus. They are now offering 175K base 20K bonus. They also declined my negotiation for sign on bonus to make up for what I’m leaving on the table by exiting my current firm. Think I should push it any further? I am ready to accept it personally.
