    your current TC is less than half of the offer. You only got 1 YOE without any competing offer. And you're saying this is a low-ball? Pretty cool

      ^That’s what I’m pondering. The recruiter says I can expect a 10-12% bonus if I perform as expected. Do people consider in the TC as well?

    How’d you get 60 with 1 yoe? Are you a master’s grad?

    It's average but you have no better options now so be careful.

    It’s a great offer! Benefits are also top notch, including multiple weeks off if you have a child.

    Based on your current TC you’d be foolish to try and negotiate this, because it just set the true value of your job much higher.

    Enjoy the offer and show up for work, FFS!
