Does it always make sense to negotiate your salary? "After doing some homework, the market range for someone in my field is somewhere in the $150k range. I have an offer at an amazing organization for $250k and I'm almost certainly going to accept it. I've read that it's always good to negotiate a job offer since companies are often willing to shell out a bit more. But how do I go about negotiating in this unique circumstance, where I'm already being offered quite a bit more than other companies would offer me?"

Quite a few respondents think if a offer is that good, just take it. 

I agree. You don't have to negotiate if the offer is good, in my opinion. 

Not everything is a negotiation.
