I got an offer for $140k base salary, plus annual 15% bonus, and I think like 500 shares equity, for an in-house commercial contracts attorney position. I have 10 years experience. I think I should go back with at least $150k, but do you think I should go higher? I was told there “isn’t much wiggle room” but we all know that’s usually bs. Also, how do I ask for a signing bonus and how much should I ask for? Thank you all in advance!

Back when the pandemic first hit, everybody at the firm took a 20% pay cut (with 20% reduction in billables...which was meaningless because I still had work to get done in a timely manner). Pay cuts still in effect through end of year. Anybody else out there still working under pandemic-related salary reductions?

Hi, anyone from PwC here and ready to provide a referral for my wife for a testing role posted on LinkedIn? Thanks in advance.

In an environment where we’re barely surviving, fielding resignations left and right, I thought this might be a good place to vent, source ideas, discuss common trends etc. Our field is very unique and hard to find comps in terms of salary, daily duties, expectations so I’m hoping we can have an open dialogue on this!

Hey everyone !

Need help to understand this.

HRA excemption Calc:
1. Provided by Company: 6,00,000
2. 40% of Basic: 4,00,000
3. Rent - 10% of Basic: Rent- 1,00,000

For tax exception, min of these will be considered.

Ques: Can I claim my entire HRA exemption of 4,00,000 (as per option 2) by showing annual rent of 5,00,000 ?
P.S.- I am staying at home with my parents and I can transfer the rent to my parents.

Thanks in advance.
