Somewhat related to salary negotiations but say you receive an offer but you want to wait until a 2nd offer at another company comes in before responding to the 1st — what’s the best way to delay/stall — or be transparent without making the 1st offer company feeling like the 2nd choice?

I’d call company #2 and explain you need the process expedited. Maybe just be honest with the first company that you’re waiting to hear all your options first, and then you can simply tell them the other company wasn’t the right fit for you if you’re unhappy with the offer

I know a manager that said he had to discuss the information with his wife first and then get back with the company and they were OK with that I believe he was waiting on another offer and he decided not to take the position they waited on them as well

Push the second company to speed up the rest of the process by telling them you are very interested but received another offer you need to respond to. Meanwhile ask the first company for 1-2 weeks to finish processes with other companies.

I’m in a similar situation. So for this scenario should I be transparent and tell company #1 that I got an offer and/or waiting on an offer from company #2 and need time? Or is expediting #2 the best bet?

I work in operations and the pending layoffs here and in tech has me nervous to jump ship. I’ve been here 3 years, and am a top performer. I’m fairly young, so my career experience is here. I got promoted twice within 2 years and love it here! Work life balance is amazing, and my managers have all been very supportive. The compensation is decent but I hear jumping will substantially increase your salary long term.

MSFT, Google, or Apple would be my top choices. Any advice for me?

When requesting a raise, has an employer ever asked you for the cost of living? As an example- asking you to list out a future mortgage payment if you purchase a home, the cost of health insurance for your family, etc. Seems intrusive and weird. Raises should based on value, not what a mortgage costs…. but maybe it’s common.
