Offer negotiation

eBay R.o.b

I was offered L6 at Alexa. I rejected the initial total compensation offer, so the recruiter escalated the matter to hiring manager. Hiring manager said that they will update the tc and recruiter will loop back to me. It’s been almost a month and recruiter sent an email that he still needs to get some approvals!!! On asking what tc he has been trying to get approval, he says he cannot tell until approved. Now I have some other offers in queue but I would prefer this one if they meet my tc. Wondering work around the situation ?

    I had friends who managed to get a large lump sum sign on in the same team. What's your TC and level at ebay?

      That's a low MTS2 so sure you can do 300 at Alexa but usually with competing offer. That team will likely make you work 10x of your current one so you better get a salary boost or forget about it

    Tell them their lack of timeliness has enabled other offers to enter consideration. Give them a deadline for you to make a decision.

      I like the project so don’t want to give the an impression of not interested.

      Well, say it nicely, but this is the gist you need to get across: you have a deadline to consider offers.
