Job-Seeker Job Offer Counter Proposal
Clemson, SC 29631
Mr. Frank Ian
Director, Industrial Systems
General Electric Company
I am excited about the offer you extended on May 15, 2019, and look forward to
accepting it. I feel confident I will make a significant contribution to the growth and profitability of General
Electric’s Industrial Systems division over the short and long term. The terms you have described in the offer
are acceptable, with a few minor changes.
Base Salary: $55,000 per annum
I’ve done on comparable salaries show that a base salary of $75,000 would be the market value of my experience
for this position. The current offer of $55,000 is below this. Based on the above, I would like you to consider
as a compromise a base salary of $65,000.
Bonus Opportunity: 3% of quarterly team results above
Because I expect to have an immediate impact on both cost-savings and increased
sales revenues, I would like to suggest increasing the bonus percentage 6% of results above quota.
Relocation Package: GE will compensate up to $10,000 for your reasonable costs incurred for relocation to
Plainville, CT. Further, GE will provide temporary living assistance and reimburse for any commuting for up
to 6 months from date of hire.
As far as relocation is concerned, I feel your relocation package
is quite generous and I appreciate the company’s policy.
Stock Option Plan: developed and
implemented after 1 year of service
If this policy is standard for all employees, I can accept
it, but again, I am convinced that I will make an immediate impact on a key division of GE, and I would like to
see the stock option plan developed in the first six months of employment.
standard employee benefits package
In discussing the standard benefits package with Jim Cline in
HR, I am quite pleased with the GE benefits package. I would only ask that the waiting period for these benefits
I am actually available to start to telecommute as early as next
week — as soon as we agree on the final aspects of the offer.
If you could see to making these modest
improvements to your offer, my performance will show you a handsome return. I am prepared to hit the ground
running as part of the GE Industrial Systems team, and achieve the next “home run” for this division.
