You can stretch out the timeline more, you are in control, this is not a limited time offer. Tell them you realize your decision process has taken a while but that you need 2 more weeks to make an informed decision as you are waiting to hear back from another company.

The timeline is to higher as soon as possible they just want you to start by year end I assume. Tell them you need more time.

Hello, I got an offer from a different firm but they only offered me $15k + more than my current base salary with no signing bonus.

I don’t hate my current employer and will probably leave for a industry job next year so not sure what to at this moment.
