In New Jersey it’s common for offers to include unlimited spray tanning as a health benefit.

Total comp should be > 250k, how much higher than that depends on your experience and skill set. Checkout Glassdoor for benefits at the company to get an Idea of typical benefits.

200k in salary plus the bonus would be a fair ask. Jersey city is marginally cheaper than NY city!

At least 30% more than what you’d get for the same role in London. We generally don’t have pensions here like you do at Deloitte UK but possible if the company is old school. Coming in at a higher level, you probably get more benefits than lower levels. Negotiate hard since you have more power and I’ve found salary and benefits are much more flexible in banking (esp in US) versus management consulting agencies.

In my experience London offers are 70% of NYC offers. I’m comparing to NYC, because people living in Jersey and Connecticut commute to NYC metro, so that would be my main justification. The offers I’ve seen from Jersey and Connecticut based companies are super close to Manhattan based companies, but I also start high if I’m asked to give my number first. The company-facing justification I would give is that is the market value for the responsibilities required for that role/level (with the assumption that I could get a similar number, just a short commute away in actual New York metro). I’m only speaking from the experience of myself and my work friends over the past 10 years - and the data might be biased based on our demographics and the specific opportunities we had.

200k base is a good target. Depends on the bank for benefits...wife works at citi and the benefits are expensive/not great
