One of the biggest benefits to having a good recruiter is that they can do these negotiations and be “aggressive” without it reflecting poorly on you or being awkward for you. My recruiter got me tons of great changes to my offer letter (e.g., removing contingencies on bonus match) and a starting bonus. They also got the firm to commit to other personal asks (nothing too unique; certain types of immigration support).

Thanks!

A good recruiter is a real asset here. Mine went back and forth for me over start dates, for example (in addition to other things). Keep the negotiating on their channel as much as possible and keep your channel free for the “so keen to be part of the team” vibes.
