Recruiter at D states the offer is at the top of their range. Can I still negotiate a higher salary? Will they pull their offer? Will they match another offer if it is a 10 percent increase and not a competing firm?

They won’t pull the offer. But they may say, “Look, this is the best we can do. Take it or leave it.” An external offer may prompt them to go above that number if they really want you. But they may also still stick to their original offer. There is no harm in negotiating however. I have never seen Deloitte or any other firm pull an offer because someone negotiated too high. As long as you’re respectful, the original offer is always on the table.


Prior to receiving the offer the recruiter did say that was the best they can do. I agreed because I do not want to negotiate prior to having an approved letter in hand. I did not mention the salary of my other offer but I did disclose that I had a verbal offer on the table. Is it still appropriate to have that discussion since we talked about it prior?

B4 won't pull offers. Recruiters also get judged on the number of acceptances, so they do advocate for higher salary but if it is at the top of the band then it is what it is. That said, what level is this? SC/M or higher there might be a higher room, but if this is analyst/C at Deloitte there might not be more that could be done.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

What is the shift timing in cgi for US client.?


generally speaking, do government agencies actually demand more from you if you’re in a higher vs. a lower salary tier/division e.g., I vs. II, II vs. III, III vs. IV, etc.? Perhaps there’s a difference between maybe I and III but is there a significant difference in responsibilities and performance expectations between II and III, or III and IV for example?

I noticed that my team doesn’t openly acknowledge my work, and don’t think I get along with them. Even at internal meetings whenever I speak or provide updates to my projects, I am met with cold silence. But when others present theirs, compliments flood the meeting. I have been personally getting compliments from my clients separately, so I am not sure what I am doing wrong. When I approached my team individually, they did not say much. How should I figure this out? Is it time to move?
