Bit late to tbe game, but a point to remember. Salary in dollars is just one variable, it hits the company the hardest. Paid Vacation or PTO hits the employee the hardest, and has a much reduced impact on the company. As such it is always, always, negotiable. The offer you 5% less then you were expecting? push for that extra week PTO. It is a variable that both the hiring manager and HR have the most wiggle on.
