I just received an offer for a new position and it has everything I want. Do I accept it or ask for a little more?

Ask for more, and if they say no, say okay.

OP, if it's in the high end of the range you already asked for it may rub them a little wrong if you ask for something outside that range, unless during the interview process you discovered additional responsibilities you hadn't previously accounted for in your original salary request

Did they ask you what you wanted, and gave you that much? If yes then accept. Else, ask more but give a good justification (benchmarking, differentiation, etc.)

If you got what you asked for then why ask again?

You're not using "has everything I want" correctly if you want more. No harm in asking for more but also be mindful of the impression people get if you're asking for more while the current offer is at the top end of the range you mentioned previously.

I would ask for the top of the range... what I said, when the same thing happened to me (and all in, was more like a 30% bump) was "this is a very generous offer, thank you; is there any way we can get to $xx on the base?" (With $xx being the top end of the range I'd mentioned). They came back $2k under that (less than 1% of base) and made it up with more in the equity. Its a polite way of asking without being aggressive and pushy abt itz

like

PwC1, it's 10% over what I'm making now. I gave them a range and the offer is on the high end, and they gave me extra vacation days, and 2 telework days. I'm leaning towards accepting it.

What % of your desired comp is in their offer?

@OP how do you like your current project / how has your experience with the firm been so far? I have only been here for a year.

BA2, I've been with the firm nearly 10 years and I'm ready for a change. Overall BAH is a great company, but I'm unable to find opportunities within the firm with my focus.

Congrats OP! Always ask in %.. easier to negotiate Share where you headed? What role?

BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
