I always negotiate. The only time the company wouldn't budge was my first, entry-level job. Economy was also doing horrible at that time too. You don't need a counter-offer to negotiate, although it does help. Know your worth, list out the benefits you want to negotiate on (it's not just salary), and prioritize what is most important to you.

Do people feel like that have more/less/equal opportunity as "others" being black in a Big 4? I'm basically the only black person on my team and the partner (who I'm cool with) said being that I'm diverse (black and female) and good at what I do I have better opportunity to advance as firm is trying to push more diversity into leadership. Thoughts?

Anyone have experience with FDD at a B4 vs more of a specialized firm like A&M? I'd expect the latter to pay more, but curious if the deals worked on are actually different or there would be a diff vibe at an A&M tier. Trying to get out of audit, but not sure it's worth sticking in B4 since not feeling EY at the moment.
