Negotiation time - advice?

 
#1 Negotiation time - advice?
14/11/2012 11:03

Just received a Big-4 offer - significantly lower than the numbers on this and other sites for the same role. Basically off the lower end of the scale!

I can not take it as is, will have to negotiate or walk.

Should I mention to HR that I have an idea of what the role generally pays?

Or go further mention the numbers I found? Or stay silent and let them come back to me?

The average is what I expected anyway.

If only I saw this forum a little earlier

Once they have put their stake in the ground, they aren't going to move very far from it - if only to save embarrassment on their part. These egotistical companies are like that.

So, basically, the best you can realistically expect is that they will increase it substantially and make you a "normal" offer.

Basically, they've already set off on a bad foot. They've lowballed you. Any increase will be seen as a "favour" that you will have to "repay".

You know what to do.

Also, would the hours be much longer than your current job? If so, you may be financially better off keeping your current job and using the available spare time to take a second job as a paperboy or working in mcdonalds. Effective hourly rate is just as important as absolute pay.
