What's your YOE? You're going from 185K to 300kTC + a nice sign on? I don't see the problem unless you're 20 YOE

You could negotiate a little more on the RSUs maybe base 5-10%, but still seems like a decent offer. Also depends on your skillset and location. Keep in mind the potential for growth within the company too.

This seems low to me. I am also targeting this kind of exit, may I ask how you sourced this offer?

Thanks for the reply. I’ve had similar issues with headhunters for biotech with disappointing, dragged-out conclusions.

Are you making 185k all in? If so yes you are crazy. This is roughly 300k gross

Great point SSC1. The more I think through the logistics like the eventual commute would be an hour each way I’m leaning that way now after thinking it through. I asked them Friday to increase offer so we will see.

This is on target for biotech afaik

I mean there always is, and having a competing offer helps, probably most room on RSUs

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

For those that are observing yom kippur, have an easy and meaningful fast. For those with Jewish people on your teams, don’t wish them a “happy Yom Kippur” or ask them to “enjoy the time”- it’s a solemn holiday. It’s also not the responsibility of the Jewish person on the team to teach you about the holiday - you have Google. And it’s really terrible to guilt them for signing off early/taking PTO to observe.

How you burned us at year end then paid out bonuses to EVERYONE in 2021, even new joiners who weren't with the firm in 2020 (much less saving your a$$es on call centers contracts). Oh, and not to mention laying off so many people I personally invested in (contd)
