This question already has an answer here:
I recently received an offer letter for a full-time position as a Software Engineer for a well-known company, contingent upon my graduation from a university.
- Interned (currently) for almost a year with company
- Manager likes my work
- Received offer for 69k
- Friend who works in the same team as me recently graduated from same university and received offer of 70k and currently is working full-time
- Glassdoor indicates average salary at same location, same company, and same position as ~71500
I like to know what other's opinion on if I were to counter-offer at 71k?
Given the fact that I already know the program I'm currently involved in, and hiring someone else at a lower pay would be a waste of time (in my opinion), because they would have to be trained
FYI, the company accepts salary negotiations, however, I'm not sure if I'm reaching too far in the cookie jar.
