Leaving too much on the table with offer?
SWE2 61 @ Microsoft
First was given a shitty offer, 128k base, 40k stock, 10k sign on.
Asked them for 135k base, 120k stock, 25k sign on. They didn't blink, didn't ask for competing offer. Took them one week to get a verbal offer to me after onsite. Then only gave me 1 week to decide.
Recuiter basically said that if they were to revise the offer it would be the final offer and would I be willing to accept it. I said yes just to see if they would go with it. Only negotiated once really. Am I leaving too much on the table?
Would I need a competing offer to push it to the next level? Maybe 140k base, 150k stock, and 50k sign on? Or just ask without one? Seems like the hiring manager really likes me, he even gave me his business card as I walked out.
