Does anyone know if Big Pharma (JNJ, GSK, Merck, etc...) give signing bonuses to experienced hires? I can’t find anything online. And roughly how much that would be?

Yes, depends on YOE (exp at 1 yr vs. 15 yrs makes a diff) as well as proving what you’re giving up (eg - bonus is X but not paid out until Q4 or something).

Well, I would say a company’s absolute most is $30k given my own experiences, but you typically have to justify it by showing what you are leaving behind, or what you got the previous year. They don’t just go to the max automatically. If you typically get $5k then you likely would get that. You’re shooting for the right roles given your YOE and background, the former of which counts for a lot more in pharma.

Should I make the move from ATL to NYC? 24 and I’ve always had a dream of living there in my 20s. I’m analyst with 1 YOE and think I could get support for the transfer itself. My hesitation stems from HCOL… I don’t have any debt and have a substantial cushion in savings (lived at home the past year) but the idea of spending ~2k rent is intimidating. I will spend ~$1.2k in atl for rent. My income in MCOL is $65k. Should I bite the bullet or wait 1-2yrs for a salary increase before going to HCOL?
