It's easiest question to answer . Just let them know what you expect and if you are flexible to negotiate.

I think my expectations are pretty standard. But I don't want to take the bottom of the barrel.

This question is art work.. so you need to sculpt your answer really careful. You got what I mean

I do use a semi transparent technique. Let them know what's my current financial status and Why am i looking for more and will have a justification for my expectations.

I like this framework. Any special terms I should use?

I have an offer to go in-house. Mid $300s base with 10% cash bonus. No equity. Job is 8:30-6 by all accounts. I thought it was a good offer but am now seeing people post in here about in house roles paying into the $500s and then there is my big law salary that with all the raises is currently at $400k and I am questioning whether this offer is still as good as I thought. Maybe I’m being delusional? Help!

Got an offer from EY-Parthenon for Director level 3 at $240k. The signing bonus would probably just go towards repaying my retention bonus; so it doesn’t matter. Currently at $210k as an M3 at Deloitte. Should I ask Deloitte to match or just move to EY-Parthenon? What’s the process to ask for a match - just talk to my Coach? Will I be pissing people off at Deloitte by asking for a salary match? Asking because I hope to make a case for SM in Dec/Jan.

I am a third year and I set really strict boundaries. I make it a practice to not worry about work. I’m always available when I need to be but I NEVER ask for work and I never hit billables (although I’m at a firm w guaranteed bonus). Even when I’m at 0 hours for a week straight I won’t ask for work. Does anyone else do this? FWIW I’ve gotten good reviews/like the people I work w and I think they like me.

For folks thinking of Accenture - Please avoid them as much as possible. Just got a note from ex colleague - they are being asked to provide Vaccine status information - if you dont comply - you will be receiving a decrease of 10% performance pay. Imagine what else they will enforce its employees more.
