Consulting

I got an offer for $150k with 15% bonus for a senior associate role at a local firm. Is the bonus fair or should I ask for 25%?

What is with people posting such incredibly vague posts and expecting helpful responses? There is no way to answer this We don’t know your experience, background, or anything about you Additionally, we don’t know what firm this is, some firms pay insane bonuses, while others tend to only be 2-3%

D1- Calm down brethren, it’s not that serious. I gave you @ Least 3 data points and you should be able to give an opinion without criticising. My years of experience does not matter, just asking if it’s fair to counter a bonus. End off!

Depends if you want the job. 25% is a big ask when they have already given a very very nice offer for a Senior Associate role. More than I make as a manager FYI.

Well, OP - for an SA this is on the high end. If you provide more info, - YOE, Skillset, location, we may be able to give you a better estimate. But then again, you're on a high end for the SA role so it's your call to ask for 25%. Whether you get it or not is a different story. And whether anyone else thinks it's fair or not is immaterial if it's ok or not with you.

What is a typical target bonus for the firm? What incentives is it tied to? 25% is more typical for a management level and often tied to sales and delivered sales targets.

‘Fair’ doesn’t exist. You think you can get 25%? Then negotiate for it.
