What service line? And what level?

Manager in advisory

Pushing for signing may be an uphill battle now vs a month or two ago. Campus hires are starting or have started, reducing the need for associates and senior associates. Promotions go into effect August 1, reducing need for managers. But if you are a senior manager, director or PPMD candidate, or you have some niche skillset, you should be better positioned. Either way, no harm in asking.

Thanks both! Any idea of what a reasonable / good amount would be based on any ranges you’re aware of? For Manager in advisory, bit of a niche skillset / focus area but nothing too crazy

I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.

I joined D's Workday practice as a C and been here ~8 months. I'm getting an offer from a lesser known practice with a 66% increase and a promo to SC. I currently love my job and team. The only motivation to jump is the money. If i stayed at D i'd prob get promoted next year and yet it wont match the salary i'm getting offered today. The money would allow me to reach my goals a lot faster, but is right to move just for the money? I know the work at the other firm will be less interesting.

I’m at a large established brand name firm doing boring stuff& just got a strong offer (2x my last year TC+promoted title) to do real estate. Very surprised as the firm is relatively under the radar but intrigued to see many partners in RE there are women! Still, nervous about leaving a big recognizable place and about an absolutely different career path—would love to hear your thoughts!
