I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?

Just got an offer from another firm (not big 4) which offered me senior title and 15% salary increase (60,900 to 70,000). Before the interview the HR asked me about my salary expectation and I told her I won’t leave for a position less than $70k. Now that they gave me the offer, I’d like a bit more though, like if it were $75k I would definitely go. How should I negotiate for a bit higher?

Hi Fishes - waan share one exp with Accenture recruitment process - my interviewer joined the interview for merely 15 mins and today I got email that I didn’t qualify and can’t apply for next 6 months. I responded to HR that it’s not ethically right and if interviewer is not free or in mood , he/she shouldn’t even start interview. How unethical this is! Interesting part is that I was appearing for senior role Level 06/07 and this causal process surprised me.

Hello friends, Can someone guide me on EY Parthenon's interview process and salary range for a senior manager.

Quick rant: I had an interview with EY for a tax senior in mid July. I followed up and was told that they’ll contact me by end of July. I followed up twice in August. No response. Got word back front the recruiter today if I’m still interested. I said yes. But no email after that yet. I definitely get that they’re busy, but man, I’d really appreciate a yes or no answer from them, as opposed to waiting on the bench haha. Thank you for listening fishes lol!
