I accepted a role with a new employer but don't start until Q2. Already signed and accepted the offer letter. With the tech stocks tanking 20% including this company's , will it be acceptable for me to bring this up and renegotiate the offer? Will it be unprofessional of me ?

I haven’t had luck negotiating after I signed an offer. Only tried once but answer was “you’ve already signed and had your chance to negotiate”

Stocks fluctuate a lot. It would be hard to renegotiate based on something that isn't entirely predictable to begin with.

Was your offer says x amount of share or $xxx worth of shares bought at the month you join?

Generally they acknowledge that in the performance review process and adjust comp accordingly with shares.

It’s going to be difficult to renegotiate once you’ve signed your offer. Ive not personally experienced this situation before but imagine employer will be thrilled.

I am an HR Business Partner at my current company but have been afforded a few human capital consulting opportunities with various big 4 firms. I don’t think I’d want to make a career out of it given the long hours, however I’m contemplating accepting the role and doing consulting for 2 years and then going back to industry. Is this a practical path? How hard is the transition from consulting to industry and what sort of roles have ppl landed that did transition to industry? Would love advice!

I recently started a role in industry where 2 managers report to me and they each have 3-4 staff and senior accountants report to them. It’s a large company with over 5,000 employees. I have weekly 1:1 meetings with the 2 managers. How do I determine how much direct interaction and communication to have with the staff and seniors? Specifically I’m looking for examples from other people in similar roles.
