How do I negotiate salary on an offer?

Currently making 88 TC at 2 YOE with Deloitte GPS consulting. Offer for an S&O role came in at 95k base and 5k year end performance bonus.

I’m worried that the mid-year salary adjustment would mean that I’d be jumping for equal or less comp. should I ask for $110k so I could get down to $105? That would translate to at least a 20% increase from my current base comp.

General rule of thumb is not to leave your current role for less than 20% salary increase unless some other factors are at play. You should’ve covered this at the beginning with the recruiter when they asked for salary expectations. I would just tell the company that you appreciate the offer but the current offer is less than you make now and you wouldn’t be comfortable with leaving your company for less pay, especially in this market. Then ask for your target salary (110k or whatever)

Yeah that makes sense. I anchored too low since I was factoring in the COL adjustment from DC to TX so that’s my fault. However the mid market salary adjustment wasn’t even known during the beginning of my recruitment process with this company so that’s what’s really thrown me off on how I should approach asking for more money

I was in similar shoes with a firm. Anchored myself too low initially and was hard to negotiate for a higher base or signing bonus due to my 3 YoE. I would say try negotiating to pitch your value adds and target salary or range. Good luck!

I personally made the jump even tho my offer couldn’t be negotiated. Factors outside of compensation mattered for me such as firm name, WLB, and type of work.

Feeling very down about starting a family. My husband is finally excited about it, but I am terrified.

We could probably swing a nanny if we didn’t save for retirement for a few years, but I’m not sure that is the smartest move. Has anyone else felt this burden during covid with all the childcare problems? We have family help, but not full time.
