The negotiation was helpful for reassurance that I was not completely off in what I was going to try. I was pretty much going to do what was suggested, but the negotiator knew the upper bound on equity I could ask for (very useful information). She also drew my attention to trying to bring the base salary up 10K, which I am not sure I was going to try, as well as for the signup bonus. As for doing better, I would have liked a video call with a shared screen. The shared screen would make it easier to follow calculation and understand the numbers.

The session was extremely valuable for helping me understand the compensation package and negotiating range for this offer. I was able to accept my final offer with confidence.

Recruiter was really helpful. They explained areas of compensation and how they are calculated by the company. Recruiter was knowledgeable about the specific company and what areas of compensation have negotiation room. Recruiter was able to help find points of negotiation in my current situation.

Using Sarah's suggestions, I was able to negotiate a better offer without much leverage on my side. I would highly recommend this service in general and Sarah in particular.
