I am expecting a verbal offer today. Do you negotiate the offer right away or take a day or two to mull it over and come back with a counter?
What do you say to the recruiter?
If it’s directly, make sure you are being realistic and not greedy. If you have a valid reason for wanting more such as a competing offer or the company is lower than your current something along those lines, the company will want to make up the difference if they can afford it. But make sure you are clear, you never want to revise an offer more than once if avoidable.
Most important, don’t be greedy and don’t take a job just for the money.
