I’ve been working at this firm for six months. I like it here and get a lot of freedom because the partner I work for literally never comes in. The only thing is it’s a very competitive atmosphere between partners and how much they bring in.

Got an informal offer to join a client (manufacturing company). 240k base, 60k cash bonus target (can shrink or double depending on company metrics) + 50k annual equity (3 yr rolling vesting). Director level which has just one additional layer between me and the Exec Committee. My contact already internal negotiated extra vacation and is working on my behalf for a signing bonus. Is it worth trying to negotiate base? Or is this already a strong offer?
