I’m no HR buff, but I think once you look over the package you should ask questions. Its considered like a contingent offer, so you can go from there!

Congrats on the offer!!

I think now is actually the appropriate time to ask these questions. You don’t want to put the cart before the horse getting into all those details during the interview. Now is the time to ensure that it is a good fit. Be grateful and respectful, of course, but get the answers you need. And YES you can negotiate salary, unless they specifically say it is a final offer. One of the major reasons women tend to make less than men is because they are far less likely to negotiate for a higher initial salary and raises.

Congratulations!!!

Now is exactly the time to ask questions like this. The company has decided that they want you and now you have to decide if you want the company. Ask as many questions as you feel necessary to make sure the company is a good fit for you. Its better to know before you accept the job than to have bad surprises after you start working there. Always negoatiate salaries (and really anything else in the offer)! Even if they say no to your counteroffer then there is no harm done and you can still accept based on their original offer.
