Wait so we have barely past first-year associates out here asking for a "fat signing bonus"? Man it's posts like these that really make me realize I need to get over my WOC imposter syndrome.

Agreed OP, if you can make it, take it

Don’t hate on A1, I agree with their sentiment. You literally barely know anything and are already eyeing a jump for a fat signing bonus? Maybe stay put a little, make some connections, and learn something. Frankly most people I know don’t love firm jumpers. It comes up in interviews and it will show on your resume.

That’s fair, but several quick jumps is very different from a one-time move in the second year

Thanks A1 for not answering the question! 🤣 OP trying to get his or her bread, let it happen. OP, 2020 may be tough, but maybe, further into your second year, you could pull it off. I saw 2019’s last year get 50k at my v25. West coast tech big law, they all compete. I will say though that we aren’t as interested in juniors right now (there’s plenty), it’s the more senior people we need.

You can DM me. We got $75K and $85K.

Go to Willkie. They need you. They’re paying 75k for a referral, I’m sure you can get fat $tack$ there

I’m an S2 at RSM in FDD in a HCOL city and after year-end reviews I got a small salary bump from $85K to $90K. After hearing about the pay for external hires, I interviewed for and just received an offer at PwC as an S2 for $102K plus a $10K sign-on bonus. I asked for a bump to $105K and PwC agreed. Should I give RSM an opportunity to match (I don’t think they will)? And does that PwC comp seem fair?

Staff two here and just got my new salary. Base is a measly $2,700 more than incoming hires. When you take into account their bonus our peer group makes 8.1% less than people with zero experience. How does this make any sense. Did leadership think this was a good idea? I’ve been reading a lot on fishbowl about managers making less than incoming MBAs. How is that fair? Think this was a really poor job of executing salary adjustments. Am I wrong or does there need to be a change soon
