I interviewed at KPMG on 11/14 and got a verbal offer the next day but since then waiting to hear from them. Been following up continuously but the partners are not replying it seems.

I am just unsure whether to accept the offer as I was waiting for kpmg reply as I want B4 on my resume which apparently is a big deal. Is BT also good on resume for future employers ??

Should I negotiate for an entry level software engineering position if I have no prior internships/SWE job experience?

I haven't gotten an official written offer yet, but after giving a salary range of what I'm looking for, the recruiter said that the typical salary is about 5-10k higher than what I said, so I'm not sure if I should even negotiate if the average salary is already higher than what I said I'm looking for. Any advice and tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

I got an offer for $140k base salary, plus annual 15% bonus, and I think like 500 shares equity, for an in-house commercial contracts attorney position. I have 10 years experience. I think I should go back with at least $150k, but do you think I should go higher? I was told there “isn’t much wiggle room” but we all know that’s usually bs. Also, how do I ask for a signing bonus and how much should I ask for? Thank you all in advance!
