Negotiation Details – VERY DIFFICULT, Firm salary offered lower than previous. and excused by generous benefits. Some slight salary, move but begrudgingly. No match on previous vacation experience. No leeway on benefits. Process very slow.
Take it or leave it impression with no attempt to convince why offer good. Discovered once inside others with less experience making more. Very disappointing.
