ask them for the match. No excuse for them not to match your current pay.

I’d just tell them that you believe your current employer compensates you at par with your experience and market rate. That while you would feel comfortable changing companies for the same compensation (state current TC), you can’t justify moving companies for less compensation.

Buying a lottery ticket gives you the potential to get millions. However, just like this opportunity, the probability of realizing said potential is far too low to be worth the investment. Unless you're desperate to get out or they're willing to give you something in writing, I'd pass @ the opportunity.

Right. Possibility of getting xxx was something EY told me too. Don’t have them bait you like that. Give it to me now or walk out

Explain your current salary, ask for match + do not forget to provide the bonus you’re possibly missing.

YOE?

5 YOE, so I feel like I can definitely get a bigger bump elsewhere.

I work as a quant/associate at a large (>300 billion aum) long only mutual fund. Ive been here for about a year, but seeing how crazy the job market is, I’m wondering if I should put feelers out again. I like my coworkers and I work good hours. I get 110k as base, and got a 10k sign-on bonus. They said min bonus is 15k, but I’m not sure what the range is as I haven’t been around for a bonus cycle. This in a HCOL city. I also get 30% match in my retirement accounts. I have ~2 YOE. Thoughts?

Any advice for negotiation? I made the mistake of letting slip my current salary to the recruiter and now I’m in final rounds at FB and the recruiter disclosed the salary for the position.

I recently got a title change at my current company, and possible salary increase, so I was thinking of using that to counter. Never negotiated before!

Feeling pretty down and stuck in Audit, after several months of searching My market has fewer job ads and I've been unsuccessful in interviews during the late stages (companies have said I fit the job role/culture but went with someone who had more industry experiences). I don't believe I'm too picky, but I'm starting to feel I should get industry experience in a smaller company then reapply to other companies. Has anyone been in this situation? Care to share some insight/advice?
