Should I negotiate a signing bonus? Received a v30 written offer. I went in house for a year in an unrelated practice so they are bumping me down to 3rd year pay scale (which I’m fine with). They are paying moving expenses and giving me 6weeks leave to take the bar. I feel like that’s a lot of expenses. I was lead through the process by a partner, very little contact w internal recruiter (other than scheduling). If I request signing bonus, do I reach out to the internal recruiter or partner?

Want to get at least my initial 10k out of brokerage. OR I could continue to average in but instead at my floor. So if we are above $83 I will put in HYS. Thoughts?
