I mean I'm not saying no, but...

Okay, hiring managers and HR folks of AskMe. Suppose your company has a job opening, and you've interviewed a candidate. Things went pretty well, and you want to make that candidate an offer. You have your recruiter call and ask him for his salary requirements, and he gives you a number. What are some reasons why you might then come back and make an offer that is $10,000 more than what he was asking for?

How do I start salary negotiations after simply agreeing on the phone?

I was offered a job, but do to being just woken up and unsure of myself when the initial call came through, I did not try to negotiate the salary when they told me what it is over the phone. It's a bit under what I wanted and I was wondering, how do I contact them to engage in negotiations? And, once I do, how do I phrase it? I feel like I accidentally already agreed. [more inside]

I received a job offer from company A this morning, and I anticipate a job offer from company B sometime after a final-round interview tomorrow. The companies are direct competitors, and each is aware that I'm in talks with the other for the same type of position. Both companies have good reputations, but it's generally accepted that company B pays more. Questions inside. [more inside]

Arts/Humanities salaries at MIT?

This is a long shot, but I am up for a position as an assistant professor at MIT (in an arts/humanities department), and I'm wondering if the salaries are similar to the other assistant professor salaries at MIT (average is 120K) or if they are paid much less, as at many other universities. Thanks!

Is it worth leaving one job for another for the same pay?

I'm employed now but have been job-searching for a few months. I've finally found a company that I'd like to work for. The disappointing part is, the final offer they've made is for a lower salary than I'd wanted; after crunching the numbers, I would be earning the same as what I earn at my current job, with no title change. Is it a good idea to move to a new employer for equivalent pay, if the only discernable difference between the two is that the new job seems more interesting? [more inside]

Employer reveals they've been inadvertently underpaying me for years

Due to an accounting error, my employer has not been paying me my full salary for the last several years. I'm in sales, and I get paid on commission, so my paycheck fluctuates month to month - I never even noticed my paycheck was always secretly slightly less than what it should have been. My employer just discovered their error and told me immediately. Which I hugely respect. We have a good employment relationship and we'd all like it to continue. They're saying they now owe me about $145k plus interest, and are prepared to write me a check, but they know this raises some tax issues for me. [more inside]

How does profit-sharing really work?

I'm interviewing for a position which includes a profit sharing program, and it sounds like it's a major component of the compensation (as opposed to something nice on the side). What are some normal, reasonable terms of profit-sharing programs? How would I compare this against a normal salaried position, and how do I negotiate for the best terms?

Transitioning from profit to not-for-profit at 40: what's negotiable?

After a decade in for-profit marketing in a secondary city, I'm being seriously considered for something close to a dream job in Toronto. The main issue is that there'd be a major salary drop -- from CAD$75,000 a year to sub-CAD$50,000, and I'd be moving from a place where the cost of living is low, and my house is mortgage-free and paid off, to, well, Toronto. My current location is not commutable to Toronto. What can I negotiate with my (hopeful) employer to help make up the difference? [more inside]

How good does Senior Developer look on a Drupal site developer resume?

I'm about to get a job offer from a small, but reasonably successful, Drupal development firm. It sounds like they may offer me the title of "Senior Developer." In most corners of the software industry, as I understand it, Senior Developer is a good title that implies you're an established professional with 5+ years of experience; 3 years at a bare minimum. The thing is, I actually only have a couple years of part time experience (though with a pretty well known site) and don't have a software related degree. Will future employers interpret "senior developer" the usual way--making this a really nice resume item? Or is the definition looser in the content site development field?

What's the salary of a rural doctor in the National Health Service Corp?

Sorry for the anonymous post. I am a pediatrician finishing my residency in July. I am interested in doing the National Health Service Corp in a rural area. I have looked at dozens of job posts on the NHSC website, but none of them list their salary. Instead they only mention that it is "competitive." It is frustrating because I don't know what the industry range for "competitive" salaries is. What is a "competitive" salary for a young pediatrician working in a rural area? $60k? $100k? $150k? Thank you so much for your help!
