Healthcare

Profit Sharing, Equity

The only thing I would bother negotiating would be, base, sign on, perhaps equity. The rest is generally what it is. Unless you were at a smaller place and then you might be able to get pto adjusted to someone of more senior tenure.

Vacation. Work-from-home options. Flexibility with hours (particularly if you have or plan to have children).

It’s just the $$$ Everything else is an excuse to you less.
