Should I negotiate salary no matter what? Asked for low 70s and offered 77. Wondering if I should just take it and call it a day to avoid looking greedy. I’m fine with what they offered, but obviously the only time you can negotiate salary is the time you’re offered it right?

You already negotiated. You asked and not only did they agree but they sweetened the deal show you how much they wanted you. If you go back now to ask for more, it will not be viewed as negotiating but as reopening a matter that was already resolved to exceed your stated expectations. I would not. It an indication of character. Be thrilled they exceeded expectations and hit the ground running! Good luck!

They gave you more than what you asked for, what's there to negotiate??

I agree. They already gave more than what you asked for, so the only thing negotiating would suggest is greed.

You asked for low 70s. They offered 77. End of negotiations. Congratulations, you got more than you asked for.

Unless you have some very specific reasons for asking for more (when they already met/exceeded your expectation), I wouldn’t do it. Like others said, definitely looks like greed

Always. Negotiate. You can’t get what you don’t ask for, right?

You’re missing the part where they asked for low 70s and were offered high 70s. What would be the basis of negotiating? “Oh you gave me more than what I asked for...well..now I want more!” You’d look foolish negotiating in this scenario without some set of facts that make sense (e.g. during this process, just got a raise to 78k at their current job).

Accept the offer. Good job on getting above your asking price and congrats on the new job.

Don’t negotiate. You already did by asking them what you wanted and they already exceeded your expectations to make you happy.

Just a tiny bit confused. Did you actually ask for something in the low 70s beforehand? And then they offered something higher?

They asked what my expected salary was and I told them low 70 in the first interview.

like

They exceeded your expectations and you’re seriously considering asking for more? That’s playing with fire......If a candidate did that to me I would either resend the offer or give you crap raises annually if you ended up working at the firm. It’s a two way street, the firm is putting its best foot forward by going above your expectation and if you crap on that nothing good will happen.

likefunny

Yeah if they already gave you more than what you asked for, trying to ask for even more is going to sound greedy.

like

Is this the market rate for the job? Yes you asked for low 70s and they gave you 77 but if market rate is higher, let’s say 90s it would be worth negotiating. You can frame it as you’ve done more research of the market rate and what they pay internally and would like to open a discussion. Be prepared to walk if you choose this route.

You shouldn’t have given a number to begin with

Sure. They’ll probably bump to to 80

Had a similar situation where the person came back to us and our CAO effectively rescinded the persons offer. We all concluded we didn’t want to work with them because a) felt they were disingenuous and b) felt they’d be a pain in the ass to work with. Not saying that judgement was right, but am saying it could happen
