Just received an offer from Thermo Fisher for 25/hr (best pay for me to date). Would it be prudent to respond with counter-offer if the recruiter stated the cap was 26 for the position?

Sure I don't see why not. If you know you'll be happy with 25/hour anyway it can't hurt to shoot for the cap. I don't think theres anything wrong with it.

Absolutely! Justify your counter by giving them 2-3 bullet points of why you deserve a higher pay.

I am coming up on a promotion. In preparation, I've done some market-level research for the future position and found the average salary is approximately $30k more than my current salary. I've been with the company for 10 years in various positions, but 2.5 in my current. My previous supervisor would never entertain any negotiations above the offer letter; stating "the offer is final". I've spoken with other colleagues and its not true.

Any advice for negotiations, and how much is too much?
