This question already has an answer here:
I applied for a job in August, and was extended an offer letter by a globally renowned organization on Dec 06 after the fourth round of interviews on November 30. I emailed back to see if there was a possibility to have the salary increased by $6,000 based on market value, and the recruiter responded on December 11 as follows: “I will share this information with the Human Resources business partner, and let you know when we have the response to your counter offer”
It is December 16, and I have not heard back from them. I replied to the email this morning to thank them for considering my request. I am not sure why it would take them this long to respond to my counter offer when it took them 3 business days to extend this offer in the first place. Would I get a response from them before January at all? Would they rescind the offer, and give the job to someone else? This long wait is killing me especially when all I asked was $6,000 more.
