You’re in no position to negotiate a raise if you’re at a big consulting firm. I’d start looking elsewhere if that’s a deal breaker

If your expectation is 100k you ask for 110k and they lowball to your expectation at 100k

It's supply and demand. Either have an offer in hand to counter or say you will walk. It's just the nature of the game. Ball is in your court tbh. Start applying elsewhere. Partnership exists to make partners money. They will pay as low as humanly possible (and there is nothing wrong with that).

I would negotiate!! Say 10k higher is what you wanted going into the interview. Worst that happens is they say no. They want people who don't take no at first (for example if you are upwelling a client you should be strong). You have to be able to walk even if you don't have a job offer in hand. They need to know you are not bluffing
