I would not walk away! As others have mentioned everything is very slow right now. Basically nothing happened between December 23rd and January 4th. And then last week everyone was just catching up. I'm still waiting for responses on competing offer negotiations myself as a recruiter. I would just gently remind your recruiter that you would love to know what the expected the timeline is.

I would not resign until I had a written offer from your counter. They should come back to you with either what you countered with or the original offer again. That has been my experience. Hope this helps.

I do want to say that the process was VERY long.. been interviewing since Sept and the verbal offer came in end of Dec. However, it was still one of the most positive interviewing experiences I have had - HR has been super responsive usually and great interviewers

I had countered with a much higher number and we ended at the revised offer I mentioned above. I did end up signing the offer

A ton of companies shut down during the holidays, Google was one of them. Recruiters are dependent on hiring managers and they took off work as well. It is a known fact that Google moves slow.

Oh ok my bad, the department I’m interviewing with was not available and recruiter referred to holiday shut down

I think it depends, it was the next day for me

What a gutsy move to counter a Google offer. I would literally counter with a lower offer to get in.

I was able to leverage my current amazon job and my path to promotion as a counter offer. Please don't hesitate to counter, all companies expect you to negotiate
