I would think that 5k is pretty standard and almost guaranteed, but you’ll likely have to ask for it once you get your initial offer. Though I am probably out of the loop because I don’t know what you mean by if they will still give a retention bonus. Did something change?

No, I know for a fact they’re not giving it for those who recently joined either.

You just join the firm, why are they trying to retain you if you’re already binded by the signing bonus?

Hey ladies! Do you have any tips for salary negotiations? Background: my friend and I left our previous employee to join this new one at the same time. I was offered more than her because of my experience and background. I also negotiated a 5k signing bonus. Fast forward to our first raise, she got a higher percentage than me, but I still made more. We were informed Friday that we’ll be getting a promotion and they offered her 5k more then me. How do I make sure we’re on the same pay level?

Have you ever lied about your salary? Because friends were making more or less? I told my partner I made a certain amount when we were just friends but now we're seriously dating and I can't keep up with pretending I'm making 270k. I'm barely netting 80k. Should I come clean? Or try and find a job that would give me more?

If you’re planning to leave one big 4 for another and also switch from one service line to another, is it worth asking your current company to make the internal transfer happen instead? It’s something I just recently started looking into and I didn’t mention a word of it on my annual review just recently. It would 100% come out of left field and I almost feel like they would at a minimum want me to do another busy season in audit before making it happen. Almost feel like a clean break is easier.
