*Always negotiate* and congrats on the offer!!

Congratulations on the job offer! There is absolutely no harm in negotiating. You mentioned you got a fair offer, so the worst that could happen is that they'll tell you that they can't increase the number. I'd say it's worth the shot!

Always ask to negotiate, just ensure that you have an idea of what the salary is like in other companies.

You can always ask, they can always say no. You’ll be happy you tried. Do it in the most graceful way you can think of, from a tone perspective.

Yes, negotiate

Hi everyone, New to fishbowl <3, early in my career as a product designer and Latina woman in Tech 💪🏽 I just landed a new contract role and wanted to share my salary experience. I was offered a role at $50 / hour and countered for $55/hour. They came back with $57. $7 jump just like that. In my heart I wanted to counter with $60 per the 21 cents rule. I think I left money on the table 😪 But hey, I’m grateful for the work. I want to share because transparency helps us all 💪🏽💪🏽

Or do folks from MBB also struggle with exit opps and leveling and whatnot?
