Find a place that helps you grow when you ask for opportunities. Your mental health is too important not to. You’ve got this!

UPDATE FROM PREVIOUS POST: I was offered a ~10% jump to go from B4 to top 10 acct firm transaction services with no signing bonus. Tf? The jump doesn’t include my B4 raise coming in like a month. So basically no jump considering everything and no signing bonus to go from audit to FDD. Kinda disappointed but oh well can always keep auditing.. is it even worth trying to negotiate up? I was hoping for at least 20% increase on top of my upcoming raise
