Final round with Morgan Stanley tomorrow. Have had minimal discussion about compensation and am unsure what to expect. They seemed ok with matching my previous salary at ACN but can I aim for more?

Why do they know your current salary

Curious to know what Morgan Stanley is hiring for right now?

Personally I would always ask for more than what you are currently making. It would have to be a reallll good package and company for me to move laterally in pay. And even when asked what my target is in interviews. I give a range that is higher than what I'd expect (from research) and let them know that I'm flexible depending on the entire package. It doesn't hurt to ask but also put it out there that you are flexible so they don't think you are greedy or set in stone and don't follow up as a result of that.

What is the role?

Side note: Avg salary for the role is already much lower than what I was receiving from ACN. That along with current covid situation, I’m not sure how I can leverage my experience for a higher salary than my previous compensation at ACN.

Was asked verbally during initial chat with HR

I gave a range +/- 5k if that makes any difference

I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?

The recruiter came back to me and asked if I could provide her data to support this ask. It’s literally based on my current salary and expected promotion/bonus (I know neither of those are certain).

My firms bonus structure is based on “billed out” (what a partner actually bills to the client) dollars instead of actual hours billed. So you can work 2000 hours but the bonus is based on only 1850 hours, because 150 got cut over the year. Is this normal? It seems entirely unfair and makes it impossible to get a bonus.

Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
