Microsoft offer negotiation timeline

I have an offer with Microsoft.

110k base + 70k / 3.5 years + 20k signing bonus.

I would like to join Microsoft (team is awesome) but my offers from other companies are comparably higher than MS.

I called the recruiter to see if MS was able to compete with my other offers and she told me she will get back to me after discussing it with the hiring manager. Its been a couple days and I haven’t heard anything back from them.

How long does Microsoft take to come back with an offer negotiation?
Also how likely is it that they will compete and offer more?

Please help!

    Don't join Microsoft. It was my biggest mistake. After few years with Microsoft I failed all my interviews with other companies. No one wants to hire me.

    I'm in the waiting process now @OP. For new-grad I was initially offered 109, 120/3.5, 20.

    Curious to hear when they got back to you and how much you got

    Take the offer with the highest income. In 2 years apply again to Microsoft and get more money. This is the game.

    Call them back - obviously if you are interested in the team - comparison of money is unrealistic - did you factor in the benefits ? Regardless it’s your choice , best option is to ping the recruiter or the manager

    Whatever you do, get at least 60k sign on over 2 years because some new masters grad on another thread got that...
