What’s the average for your area? Sometimes national average can skew higher or lower because of HCOL cities or not enough data etc.
Also, would it be a raise for you if you accepted? Room to grow at the new company? Could still be worth it unless you’d rather continue your search for a better offer.

I m in SoCal. It wud b same salary as last role which had bonus and this one’s doesn’t and the health ins here is expensive vs last job. I’ve also been unemployed for a while so not feeling like i have much choice or options. That said, I am very grateful to have the offer and will accept…just trying to negotiate…have never had luck negotiating in the past.

I’m a Marketing Manager now for a startup in Cali and my base is more than that. I think you could maybe negotiate a bit more?

Yeah- maybe take it but negotiate sign on bonus or equity? You can leverage it for a higher paying job later too

Additional Posts in Negotiating Offers

I applied to Pinterest and Amazon. I have interviews at both and it's looking positive. I'm a little worried I set the bar too low with my initial response for salary range expectations when I applied. Anyone ever told the recruiter afterwards a higher range and been successful? What might you say to adjust the range? Thoughts?

What's the best way to ask for a pay raise?

When I was headhunted for the job, ESG was a relatively new concept and too few companies hire for related positions. I didn't find any salary range from Glassdoor or anywhere so I had no idea. My fault was I did not ask the HR and just gave my asking salary. When I saw a similar post from my company (I was already hired that time), they were already including the pay range and I realized mine was way below. I'm already 2.8 yrs in the role.

Hi Fellow Fishes! I need some urgent advice. I had accepted a job offer at a really good company with a good role and team. I am due to start that new job on Monday 30th Aug.

So I would be declining the job at the first company just 2 days before i am supposed to start! I know its a good problem to have but a very unpleasant conversation with them.
