I have two offers, one from Company A for a high salary, and one from Company B, for a lower salary.
Company A made me an offer the other week and would like to hear back by today, EOD.
Company B recently made me an offer, and it was lower than I had hoped. I asked if there was anything we could do to get it more in-line with my existing offer. I'm more interested in working with Company B.
They informed me they'd see what they could do, and would get back to me by the end of day. They are also aware that I have an offer pending, due Today, and have been somewhat dragging out the process.
Would it be uncouth to politely prompt Company B for an answer now (mid-day) so I do not miss the cutoff point for Company A?
I would hate to have Company A's offer revoked for taking too long, and then have Company B come back with an offer I don't like. Conversely, I worry it reflects poorly on myself (impatient / greedy / insecure) if I were to prompt Company B mid-day when they said they'd get back to me at the end-of-day.
Any tips much appreciated!
