Got an offer from a big 4 firm but going to owe my current company for tuition. They didn't say anything about a signing bonus in the verbal offer, would they be okay with me asking for one?

You should bring it up with your recruitment rep. 12k is a good starting point. Time to flex your negotiating muscle. Always negotiate from a position of strength but with flexible interests. There is no standard offer, everyone is unique. What value is this tuition to your prospective employer?

I'll only owe 12k back.

Weird, most offers for experienced hires come with a signing bonus....it def won't cover tuition tho haha

Federal position doing analytics. Say they give me like 10k, what's the take home number from that?

Yeah but would it make a difference since this is a federal position and not commercial?

Well if you didn't mention this fun fact as part of your T's and C's to leave you can't mention it now. So go for signing bonus. It will at least help and cash out your vacation.SBs and PTO get taxed differently.

Mind sharing what your base salary offer is?

75. I haven't accepted, just acknowledged.

Depends, Advisory doesn't give signing bonuses to exp hires, I would bring it up. If they want you they will negotiate

Ask

How long to burn off tuition reimbursement? Will new firm wait? You may not want to wait tho.

^I'd have to wait 7 months. They want me in 2 weeks. I asked for 15, that way after taxes I'll get most of what I need to cover. If not I'll ask for a bump in the base salary.

Looking for advice: I’m moving to North Carolina in a month from another East office. I’m an audit S3 and have an accepted transfer to NC (effective after the move).

I still have valuable D&T connections - I wouldn’t have had the transfer accepted without support from partners, etc. But in this job market (and to help with relo cost that D&T won’t pay) it seems like a potential wasted opportunity for me to not check out other B4 or apply for manager position. Any thoughts? Thank you!

Let's say you have two competing offers: one is a lateral move that offers a decent bump in comp, the other a promotion with more comp and more responsibility. Let's assume there's no difference in firm culture, prestige, WLB, projects, etc.
