Don't chase the money.

I hear the salaries they pay aren't especially high, so I don't think I'd leave for the 20% bump people talk about. The bonuses within the industry are high though, but I'm wondering if I may be exposing myself to the risk that they don't perform and the bonuses aren't what they've seen in years past.

Talk to insiders. Most companies exaggerate bonuses to lure in New hires.

Pushed back my raise when I first started 2 years out of college. They doubled my raise when i told them I was looking around.

I'm at the point where I'll probably take the job if they offer me my PwC salary effective 7/1. Obviously, it won't be hard to beat the bonuses here, but I would love at least a 10% bump given I won't be traveling for the role

Pwc1 is exactly right. Don't go anywhere in industry of the promise bonus. I was fooled that way "it's the only way to get you to that salty due to banding" lol.

I'm pretty confident about the bonuses in the industry, it's what they're known for. But I think EY1 hit it on the head- not to chase the money. It's an environment I would be much happier in at the end of the day so I think the money will come if I'm good at what I do there

You have to be able to "justify" what and why you're negotiating and be willing to walk away. Bars your negotiations on facts not on what you think you're worth.

But there's no such thing mentioned in the offer letter regarding the applicability of only and only HDFC account.
