I always negotiate before signing the offer letter.

Very true! Thank you.

Agree with PC1 above. I would negotiate that before signing the offer letter. There isn't really a specific position level where they will or will not. It never hurts to ask for one.

You can always ask. The worst thing that happens is that the answer is no. It’s important to keep it friendly and professional. You can do this

I’m probably overthinking is but change is always a little scary.
