I am looking for a job change and I have been contacted by an employer. I had several rounds of interviews, I was offered a job and we began salary negotiations.
The offered salary did not suit me - I had clearly indicated one figure. We never agreed on a salary. They kept on negotiating but ultimately I turned them down. However, I was contacted the next day and the employer wanted to re-negotiate. After some discussions, they offered the amount I had originally requested.
Is there anything I should be worried about here?
I am confused because I declined the offer originally and the employer only agreed after re-negotiating.
I have not came across this scenario until now. Is this normal?
Edit (as answer was closed ) :-
How to take the decision in this scenario? how to safeguard self in this situation?
-- As replies suggest that if they agreed what your asking, go for it. But Caution is they soon can replace me with another day they find. As salary negations also went long after rejection only they came up agreeing. I am aware that they were checking with other (selected) candidates also.
-- Package what is asked and offered was lucrative so without giving thought/taking advice can't be rejected as well.
