Just be upfront with the new employer that you’re walking away from a sizable bonus that you’ve worked all year for - that if they’re needing you start before the payout of that bonus then you’re hoping they consider a signon to make up for the loss. Otherwise, negotiate starting later so you receive the bonus before starting. In most places you have to be on payroll on 12/31 to be eligible for the payout even if you leave on 1/1! I’d look through your intranet or employee handbook and find out. :) good luck!

the direct approach, I like it! Curious to hear if you end up doing this OP and what they say - I think it's perfectly reasonable

Tell them just that - you're considering making the switch, but in doing so, you'd be giving up a significant bonus and would they be willing to match that. Good luck!

I’m struggling and need advice. I’ve been in a senior role at my company for 3+ years, doing the job of a Director / VP without the title and comp. My execs dangle the promo carrot with insane goals but when I (over)deliver, I’m told I need to do more to earn the promo. It’s clear they won’t acknowledge my value and are content to take full advantage of my IP. I’m exhausted, emotionally raw, burnt out and want to quit—but as the sole breadwinner, I’m terrified of the job market. What do I do?
