There is tremendous inconsistency not only between firms, but also within firms. The amount of a signing bonus, if any, for a lateral hire is dependent on multiple things. The primary factor is the specific need for a given position and skillset at the moment. A specific office within a firm can give two offers on the same day, one with a signing bonus and one without. It all comes down to need at the moment and what a firm is willing to pay to fill the need at that time. There are other considerations too, but the above is the primary driver. I have also given a larger offer and bonus to candidates if I see elevated proof of talent, drive and potential greatness.

Dear Peanut paying companies (TCS especially), don’t you have some basic manner in valuing the precious time of Candidates? When you’re scheduling interviews, you asked about the current salary and expectation. Even though knowing the peanut you’re going to offer is way below Candidate’s current salary, why are you still processing for further interviews? Don’t you ashamed of yourself calling as a Recruiter? These are basic manners/commonsense, which you guys are unaware of!!!

I feel like every time I close a deal and feel like I did a decent job, weeks/months later I find out that something is wrong. Kindda hard because I’m at a firm with very minimal supervision, but ultimately it’s my fault for not catching the mistakes since I’m not junior enough to use inexperience as an excuse but also not senior enough to do things by myself… Maybe I’m just not a good lawyer?
