And what are the chances the company will take the offer back if I negotiate after accepting an offer?

I had an offer from Verizon last year and tried to negotiate and it was a no-go so I walked away. It doesn't seem VZ negotiates much since they have so many people applying for roles who would gladly accept the salary offered. I even had a competing offer and they still wouldn't match it.
Aside from salary, I also left the negotiation because some things weren't disclosed until I spoke to other employees there who mentioned "early hour meetings with India." This and some other red flags could have been overlooked because of a higher salary but since that was a dead end I walked and went with another offer.
That being said, I still always wonder what working at Verizon would have been like and have done for my resume and career trajectory. Despite some of the complaints on here I've seen many people go from VZ to Facebook, Google, etc. so it could always be a stepping stone if you can deal with the salary and (possible) hellish culture.
don't negotiate. run. and leave skid marks.
Absolutely! You can always change an agreement. Verizon does it every day. Grab a lawyer though, you have to be a thorn in their side first. Then, apply for jobs elsewhere because you won’t win
Good luck with that.
What was the original offer and how much are you looking to get?
@1op, manifesto much?
What kind of weasel would even think of trying this?
what are your other options? retail? fast food? you are greedy entitled bi@tch
You'll be told it is all done by metrics and it is non negotiable. There is no one to negotiate with about it. You either accept or reject but the latter gives you no benefit.
Remember, they don't have to give you anything.
There's only one way to find out...
In the eyes of the law compensation negotiation is considered a declined offer. As a manager I can tell you that offers aren’t controlled by us so more than likely it’s the highest you are getting anyway.
You’ll negotiate yourself out of the job
Rescinded an offer for someone who did this. Never thought twice about it.
there is no negotiating after you've accepted the offer
I've never heard of this even being attempted in any of the companies I've worked for.
I know people have walked away from negotiations disappointed, but no one has tried to immediately re open negotiations.
With that established, I suspect it would have a lot to do with the hiring manager.
Though other factors could come into into play like- how valuable your skills are, or uncontrollable life changes.
Personally, once I've come to an agreement... we're done. I would consider it to be pretty sleazy and underhanded if someone tried this with me. Also, once I've agreed to take someone on, I get the bureaucratic ball rolling immediately. So part of my consideration will be how far along that process is, and how difficult it will be to change that process.
Doing this would also make me question your ability to research and prepare for a presentation or project. Also, why are you unable to accept your mistakes and move on. Do I really want you on my team?
Having said that, if I really needed your skillset, I'd hear you out. I'd also listen if you said (and I believe you) some emergency came up that would require more pay or benefits.
Like I said earlier, if I hear you out, I'm probably going to be irritated, insulted, and suspicious. If you don't 100% convince me that you're not lying to me, I will be thinking about whether or not I want someone who would do this on my team.
Remember that if we do renegotiate, I can pull the plug too, and find someone else.
I'm sorry, I know this is a page for layoffs but I don't have many places where I can ask this.
