After a great interview process at a big company, ( I was given to believe that a positive feedback came from those who interviewed me) I got a rejection email from the HR; but 3 days later, another employee (at a higher position) of the company sends an email with apology and wants to make me an offer. How should I respond?
I like the job and it is right up my alley. But not sure how to leverage this situation and bargain and not appear desparate. I certainly dont want to appear desperate by accepting this offer as I am currently in a great company that pays me well and co-workers are good. Only issue is that, going by the company's performance, I might end up being stagnant in company.
