I asked for 10k increase in salary, extra weeks holiday, and pension matched at 5% instead of 3%, I gave them till 1pm to think about it. at 12:45 they offered me 5000, extra week holiday and the matching at 5%. I turned them down, at 12:59 they agreed to the full 10k, still at the company today. I work in IT.
I was at 50k, 3 weeks holidays, and 3% pension before the offer. the other company was offering me 58,000 and similar holidays.
Im now the IT manager at my company.
