Got an offer for an industry tax job. $15k bump in salary. But, because of timing differences, I’m going to lose out on the bonus from my current firm (I’m guessing 4-7k), but won’t be eligible for another year at the new place. Tips/advice to get a signing bonus or something to make up for that?

Just tell them that you’re walking away from a bonus at your current job and would like a signing bonus to make you whole.

See if the new job will consider you for the full year bonus regardless of your start date

If it’s about the money than you’d need to quit asap

I’m not sure what you mean, can you elaborate?

What PWC said is spot on. Went through this exact situation with my job offer. Told them how much of a bonus I was expecting, that it’s paid all or nothing, and asked if there’s anything they can do to help out. They gave a signing bonus equal to my expected bonus.

I am two months short of completing 2 years of service at the current firm. I got a good offer and looking to move. This means I will have to pay back about $6k in joining bonus. Is there anyway I can negotiate this? I have so much overtime work hours that can currently be tracked to about 500+ hours for this year alone. What are somethings I should be aware of when paying back the joining bonus?
