Negotiating a Job Offer

When negotiating your job offer, remember that a salary isn’t the only thing on the table. There are many other things that you can negotiate, some of which might be worth more than a small bump in salary. Just because you got a “no” on your request for a higher salary doesn’t mean you should stop pushing for what you’re worth. Other things you can consider include:

  • Paid time off (PTO)
  • Health, dental, vision and disability insurance
  • Retirement savings plan
  • Life and AD&D insurance
  • Stock options/equity
  • Bonus structure/amount
  • Title
  • Tuitition reimbursement
  • Referral program
  • Relocation offer
  • Remote work options or flexible work schedule
  • Wellness programs (e.g., gym memberships, stress-reduction program)
  • Employee discounts
  • Additional paid family leave
  • Childcare assistance
  • Paid parental leave
  • Adoption assistance
  • Equipment upgrades
  • Payment of your phone/internet
  • Commuting expense reimbursment
  • Education/professional development (course fees, etc.)
  • Specific projects/assignments
  • Headcount on your team
  • Mentorship from higher ups
