“Thank you for the offer! I received xyz offer from company x, are you able to match the total compensation? This role is my top choice so I’d be ready to accept if we can align on the comp”

Sorry 2 other things. I prefer to make the initial ask over email instead of phone so it’s more formal (and so I don’t back down). Then hop on call if needed. Ask them to match even if you’ll take slightly less. They probably will come back with lower TC than other offer anyway so give yourself room.

Did you fully compare all benefits? I usually say I have another offer, this is my preferred role but after reviewing all salary and benefits, would need xxxx to accept. Don't just base on salary

Solid point, thanks
