Thank you very much for the e-mail and your helpful suggestions.
Actually I was just about to write you an e-mail with some questions.
Also about the D offer: They have made a very standard offer and I am pretty satisfied with it (base salary in lower 80k, 0-12% bonus based on
performance, 401k and pension, health and dental insurance, relocation expensed including lodging and food expenses for 1 month plus a lumpsum amount and some other things.) Only thing that is not clear is the vacation and I will inquire about it. I talked to my friends and they said that even though it is a standard package, many a times corporations leave a little room for negotiations. If this is true, does it make any sense to open up such a discussion and how shall I do it.
Thank you very much for sending me the information on the career workshops.
I will certainly talk to the people in the department and by next week I will let
you know what they say.
And yes indeed you answered my questions about the vacation.
Also, can you tell me if it is possible to negotiate the base salary with the organization?
