I had agreed verbally on an offer that was a more than my initial expectation. I am interested if I would be able to ask more of the base salary stating my lost compensations with my current employer.
During the discussion the hiring manager sounded positive about me being part of the team. On discussion further with the hiring manager I asked if the offer is set on stone. I also mentioned about the lost benefits at my current employer. The hiring manager encouraged me to negotiate(off record). I requested for a raise with the HR manager after the hiring manager was open. But the HR manager mentioned she had forwarded my request to an approving manager and also mentioned nor the hiring manager would have no control of approval of requests. Question: Would this request cause me the offer?
