For consulting roles, depends on the firm but signing bonus can always be. For internal roles, generally yes.

By how much? Mine is 30k atm

At Bain, salary (and bonus targets) are fixed based on level (I.e., no negotiation). I believe there is some flexibility around signing bonus. You can also negotiate which level you come in at, but you will of course be held to the higher expectations.
