I have a job opportunity that will be a lateral move from my current position. It will grant me exposure to external communications and public relations versus what I have experience in, Internal. They are offering me 90k from a salary band of 80-90k. Because I was referred for the job from the hiring manager that I will be reporting to, is it asking for too much to counter offer?

I would always negotiate! Doesn’t have to be crazy higher, but the answer is always no if you never ask.

Always negotiate. They may give you a signing bonus or offer extra vacation. I’ve experienced both. I’ve also been told sorry, we just can’t get there but you’d be eligible for a merit increase after x amount of time. It’s very unlikely that they’d rescind their offer.
