OFFERS & NEGOTIATING - Has anyone made a counter offer to a company and had the company rescind their original offer? For context I requested a later start date and now I am nervous they will essentially say rescind the original offer and basically say never mind! Any opinions or feedback to my anxious brain?!

I highly doubt it. If you’re still in claims, those positions are in very high demand

Politely asking for 10% more is very likely to result in either an improvement to the offer or just a refusal to improve it, but you’re very unlikely to lose the offer over it.

This is good to know! I’m considering negotiating an offer, fingers crossed!

I’ve seen it happen, but it was because of the person’s attitude and for asking for WAY more than what the company was offering. Negotiating start date doesn’t indicate that you’re not engaged with the opportunity or that you’re being unreasonable. I think you’re in good shape.

I counter every offer and I have not seen this. When I was earlier in my career it was a concern. But it’s just more the anxiousness. You know they won’t do it but are scared of the what if. Go ahead and counter.

Typically they try to hire and give a start date based on orientation date and when the training class starts since they usually train a group at a time. If you requested a later start date that passes the training class start date, they may bump you to the next training class. I don’t think you have anything to worry about since there’s a high demand for claims adjusters.

Need some advice. I left Deloitte for a public company. I signed an offer letter with some RSUs with a total grant value in $. The number of shares is imputed with a 90 day look back at the grant date. Some time after signing my offer letter but before my start date, they announced that they were being acquired and taken private. The acquisition hasn’t closed, but their stance is that my grant price is the acquisition price. Even though the close of the acquisition is months away still.

Got a T&T violation email from Deloitte saying that I will have a ethics review within 60 days. I added a security but forgot to add a brokerage account, I promptly closed my account when T&T reached out to me last month. Should I be worried, how serious are these? Can they ask for my tax returns?
