Hi ladies! Currently interviewing. How did you negotiate a sign on bonus? Salary negotiation is new to me.

I usually try to negotiate aggressively on purpose on base salary and they inevitably have a hard stop. Then I ask for an additional signing bonus in lieu. I say something about how I’m giving up my annual bonus at the current company so would need a signing bonus to even it out. Good luck! Depending on level and firm, you can get 5 figures.

Are you forgoing a bonus at your current firm, require relocation, or have other pending offers? That’s usually the easiest way to negotiate. Otherwise, I just kind of say $x is what I’ve seen in the market (got $5k for this reason at my current job) Remember, the worst they can say is no!

Thank you for the offer. I anticipated to be at $x base with a $y signing bonus. Are you able to match that? They either come back with yes or a meeting offer or a no, and you go from there.

Would you reply back in email or schedule a call to discuss?

I feel like I have absolutely no point right now and it doesn’t seem like that’s going to change.
