Just got verbal offer for a position im really interested in . TC would be at least 30 k more, which I’m happy about. In all honesty I wasn’t looking for a new job. Tips for negotiating a salary you’re already happy with ? Is there a rule of thumb to ask for 10 k more ? Clearly I’ll take all the money I can , but I don’t want to be too greedy and miss out.

You could lie and say you’re talking to another company that’s offering 10% more and see if they’ll match. Asking for more without any reason or anything will probably get rejected though (and you’ll look weird)

When we began talks they quoted me 70 - 150 K and I chuckled… offer came in around 130.

I would say historically ~20% bump above your current base is reasonable. Though from what I understand of the market right now, particularly at the lower and mid-levels people are getting as much as double that. I don't think there's any harm in saying you were hoping for 10% more than they are offering you, but you need to be prepared for them to turn you down.

No there’s no rule of thumb to do that. The rule is to accept what you want. No need to squeeze the lemon once it’s already squoze. If it’s something you’re not happy with, don’t make an ultimatum. You can call them to discuss. Gently thank them for their offer and ask if they can meet you upward to where you want (with provided justification). If not, discuss how you can expect to grow to that level on a quick timeline.

Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about.

No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...
