Just got a job offer - negotiation opinions wanted!

Illustration for article titled Just got a job offer - negotiation opinions wanted!

So I just landed a job offer with a company I’ve been interviewing with for a few weeks now, and with the job title I’ve been after for a few years. I’ll be a Project Engineer, but the company came back with a mere $4k salary increase, and a week less vacation than I currently have. Obviously I will have increased responsibilities, and will likely be working more hours & working harder with less vacation to speak for. When they asked for what salary I needed, I told them an $8k raise, which isn’t too far off. Would it be too much of a stretch to ask for another $4k and a week of vacation? If Oppo has any Opp-pinions about what I might be able to counter with, I would be very grateful — thanks guys!
