I have received a good job offer, but it is at least 10k below the market rate. At the time I stated my salary expectations, I didn't know what the market rate was but do know now.
I have since asked the org if the offer is open for negotiation so that it is more in line with industry rate and waiting to hear from them.
- is it seen as negative doing this, could it result in a withdrawn offer immediately?
- is it better to do this now then wait until you are in the role, then negotiate? From experience, I have found that salary increases are hard to come by once in a job.
I have not accepted the original offer yet.
Following a mature amicable professional discussion, organization have increased their offer, and I have decided to accept it.
