Just accept. Some companies add the extra amount for good will. Definitely don’t get greedy in this market, lots of layoffs etc incoming

Either ask for a little more or use a counter offer as leveraged if it was me, I’d ask for a minor sweetener but would accept it if they don’t provide

Get your foot in the door and discuss more at the next adjustment. A 10k extra in base at this point is negligible (it’ll be nice but in all honestly won’t make that much of a difference)

Appreciate you all taking the time to respond - I am going to hold here given the goodwill expressed thus far. It's still a huge W given where I'm currently at.

If you want to still negotiate, ask for maybe a signing bonus or stocks etc. Basically not on the base but anything that’ll take your TC higher. Congratulations either way, this is great!
