Uber Offer

My recruiter is telling me that I need to tell them my competing offer in order for them to generate a salary package for me and it’s an exploding offer. Is this the case or I am getting bluffed?

This is a really terrible experience, no companies I got an offer from does this.

      Hey guys! Chill out. Uber is certainly not tier 4 but we as job seeker or employees should know that companies should do better than giving out exploding offer.

    Just add 20% premium on the best offer you have and give that number to the recruiter

      Maybe it’s because they don’t want me that badly.😢

      You might just have a recruiter who’s trying to get you more comp!

      Maybe but highly doubt that because the recruiter said it would be an exploding offer.

    No such thing as an exploding offer. You'll get endless extensions as long as they're still looking for engineers who meet their bar. Tell them your other offers if they're decent. That will actually help them give you a competitive offer.
