TIkTok/Bytedance offer - too many negotiation asks?

Congrats on the offer!!For me, of the three things I would prioritizing getting clarity on whether or not relocation is necessary for the job. And, if it is, whether or not they would provide assistance in relocation (moving expenses, visas, sponsoring spouses, etc.)I think once you have information on that, you can decide if —1) you want to continue with negotiating your start date and compensation2) if compensation should now be adjusted for cost of living or lack of relocation assistance, etc.

A resource I found *super* helpful in salary negotiation was this website/book: https://fearlesssalarynegotiation.com/salary-negotiation-guide/

I wouldn’t look at it as you have to limit your asks. What if start date and salary are flexible for them but their biggest gap is someone with the right skill set? You’ll limit yourself by tempering your asks. See if you can find out what their biggest needs/priorities are for this role, or what’s low priority/high flexibility - is their greatest need urgency to fill it? Then they might have less room to budge on start date. Whatever you’re asking cite a principle behind it. It’s harder for them to argue with logic “I’m seeking fair market value salary for this role which is typically in the range of $##-##” than simply “I want more money”. You’ll need a better principle than “I want to finish my current job and stay until July” or they will say ‘then stay at that current job’. But if you give up something (like start date) (aka a concession) be sure to make it known so they feel compelled to offer something in return. Good luck!

How about “I feel a professional responsibility to complete X, Y, Z before leaving”.
