Has anyone experienced or negotiated with a shop buying out their bonus as a condition of employment?

Did this with my current shop. They asked me to provide documentation of my previous year’s bonus (this was in NY before it became illegal to ask about comp) and they bought me out of that amount, scaled up to be proportionate with my new company’s base/bonus breakdown. The buyout became a clause in my employment contract as well

I have an offer from EY. They rejected my counter offer for a higher salary but accepted my counteroffer for a higher sign on bonus. They gave me a few more days to think about the new offer. I want to know how likely would they be willing to renegotiate if I tell them I still want something closer to my original counter offer.

Thanks for doing this! Last year it was announced we would see a market correction in salary vs. the other big 4. What we got was underwhelming to say the least. What was the rationale behind this?
