I got an offer at Accenture for the consulting development program. How much should I be asking for? Is this a good opp? Base is 77.5k

Good, bad, indifferent, always ask for more unless you have already negotiated in the front end.

ACN, thank you. I really loved the team and would love to work with you. I had an opportunity to review the offer, and would like to counter with a starting salary of 85k and a signing bonus of 15k, which I believe better reflects my prior experience. Please let me know your thoughts.

77.5k is standard for CDP Analyst straight out of school. Considering you are an experienced hire, I would imagine you can get up to 5k more, the benefits package is locked at what they first offered. I would push back on signing bonus, relocation stipend (if applicable) and total salary. That being said, CDP is one of Accenture’s largest programs and there isn’t a much (if any) wiggle room to negotiate

like

I’d ask for 10k more on your base and let them meet you at 82 or so.

Regardless of how this turns out, congrats! That’s a great offer for someone with your experience and age range. Trust me - you’ll be making way more than a majority of your peers. And money isn’t everything - the program itself sounds like a fantastic opportunity to get your foot in the door.

Any tips on negotiating the offer is appreciated . Includes standard sign on bonus, (mediocre) PTO sick days, and ability to buy shares. Would be happy(er) closer to the 80 range. Is their offer Reasonable? Or did I get low balled ? I am 3 years out of undergrad

My PTO as a new analyst was like 15 days

Where and what level? Edit: coming from consulting or industry?

I think, generally, entry level non-consulting experience isn’t valued. You’ll still need to learn how to operate in a consulting environment so seems about right to me. I’ve heard of people with like 10yrs industry still coming in as senior analysts 🙃

CDP has recently been revamped and includes some great initial training opportunities. What is your location? Often that will affect base pay. Offer seems pretty standard, but it is always worth trying to ask for more just in case. For your 3 years out of undergrad, did you do anything that can add value? You may be able to play this up as a differentiator or justification for why they should pay you more vs the straight out of college hire

There might not be much wiggle room since you can’t leverage any consulting experience :/

What is the city? And what is ur current company and title? And what is the offer position and title?

Echoing with the partner above - 85K should be more reasonable for 3 yrs of work experience. TBH, I started at 82K right out of undergrad at accenture in LA as a technology analyst.

I'm in monaqo since 5yrs, I just got promoted with 52% hike from 12.5LPA to 19LPA(18Fix,1V) and increased NP to 90D from 45D. Every year I get hike betwn 20-25%.
Now got offer from freshmenu(product based) giving only 25% hike(24Fix,0V) but ready to wait 90D NP. They are saying - I already got good hike, no budget, your NP is high and we are considering only fixed part.
So in dilemma to stay for yearly hike or to leave because of 90D NP which will make difficult to get another job

New to crypto , want to sanity check 2 things:

2) Coinbase vs Robinhood: I still don't get the "ownership" element. I can avoid fees by using RH, but I don't fully "own" crypto. Apart from security, is there a financial consequence? Will fewer people buy my crypto on RH in the future bc it's not "owned"?

Was talking to a recruiter today and when she asked about my desired compensation I told her a minimum of $80k since it is already below the average for a Financial Analyst in nyc. Recruiter then asks me why do I think I deserve that amount. I was taken aback because I thought that is very fair for someone with experience in the field already and have a few years of relevant experience as well. Am I tripping or was that condescending? She then tries to low-ball me to $70k 😐.
