Did anyone negotiate their salary when transferring from intern to associate? Or is it more common to take what you're offered as the 'base rate'?

As an intern/first year, you really are in no position to negotiate.

Take what they give you and be grateful. Frankly incoming associates have no real value yet, you know nothing Jon Snow. Once you get to experienced Senior or Manager then you have plenty of leverage for negotiating as you move between firms.

Agree with first two replies. Negotiations are rare at the entry level. Maybe at a local small firm where they are only hiring one or two people and have limited recruiting outreach. But at B4, nationals and regionals it doesn't happen (unless a very unusual exception).

Transferring ?

The only form of negotiation you might have is if a comparable firm is paying their associates more for the same role. I’ve successfully negotiated a payrise going from associate 1 to associate 2 to put my salary in line with my peers in other firms. But you really have very little negotiating power as a grad in most cases

When you’re leaving for industry is a great time to negotiate

We got confirmation from grads in the other firms around pay levels first. As an intake, we then spoke to our resource coordinator and she took the case to the our partner group. It definitely helped having the entire intake involved - strength in numbers, although there are only 7 of us. I think management are aware that there are comparable jobs in the market, so if they can’t even match the other big 4 they have no hope of retaining grads

In most jobs you always negotiate a salary but as an entry level associate at B4 or mid tier it really doesn’t happen.

I negotiated. Didn’t get a bump, but did get a sign on bonus

EY 1, how did you make that happen? Who all did you speak to and what was the conversation like?

If you’re transferring markets, say from one with no income tax to one with income tax, or to a higher cost of living, you can negotiate. If you have multiple offers you can negotiate. If you have the angry support of your start class you can negotiate. If audit is, somehow, getting paid more, negotiate. But if you’re only holding onto one offer with no plans on moving, be careful
