How about your paycheck is your retention bonus? Or feel free to join the ranks of the millions unemployed right now. This level of entitlement is astounding.

Agree with M1...paycheck is retention bonus... if you don’t wanna stick around there is a line of people ready to take your place. Harsh but the truth. Entitlement is certainly an undertone here.

I’m currently in biglaw and interviewing for an in house role.

Does anyone have experience with this line of questioning from HR and has anyone negotiated for higher than the number they initially said they were targeting?

Some former colleagues at Manager level at B4 left for IB jobs where they joined as Associates.

Does it worth the “cost(s)” if it is really the role you want to move to? (Looking at a possible exit opp, but most likely A or SrA. role at IB boutique, not higher)
