I got a 2nd job offer after formally accepting another (both start in 2.5 weeks). Job Offer 2 salary is a few grand more than Offer 1(already acceted) AND pays 100% of health/dental/vision premiums, which will save me another few thousand a year. Both jobs are in a city notorious for it's high cost-of-living (my partners job is moving us from the midwest to SF this summer), so several thousand dollars difference *WILL* be noticeable. Is it too late to use Offer 2 to negotiate Offer 1?

A few thousand? What % of your salary does this represent? If you’ve formally accepted (signed) it’s going to be tough to negotiate the agreed salary. And you need to mean it. Would you really be prepared to walk and burn a bridge over this amount? Unless you’re living paycheck to paycheck, you shouldn’t notice a few thousand dollars (per year). You’ll just save less each month.

Without knowing the details, high profile tech is usually a pretty strong move for future employment elsewhere. But, there’s much else to consider that’s super subjective. In either case, congratulations - sounds like you can’t make a “bad” choice here.

I wouldn't negotiate an already accepted offer. It's going to leave a bad taste. You could take offer 2 though, that's not actually too uncommon.

I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
