In need of a gut check: I lateraled a year and a half ago to move to a location closer to my husband’s parents. I loved my old firm and was given good opportunities and was extremely cautious about lateraling, so I asked many questions during my interviews, including whether associates made their hours. I was assured they always did. Day 1 at the new job starts and it turns out I was hired with another associate for the same position. I can now go weeks at a time with just a few hours of work.

I'm interviewing with Deloitte Consulting for a Senior Manager role. I'm an experienced hire with an MBA and 10yrs relevant experience based in Southern CA. Based on Glassdoor and several really helpful links from here (thank you!), it seems the base would be $210-230k, am I on par here? What are typical signing bonuses these days? Glassdoor suggests 10% bonus, but the recruiter told me north of 25%. I'd really appreciate TC guidance from anyone else knowledgeable in this space.
