I just got my second promotion in 3 months. The salary I’ve been offered is less than what I was expecting and could get elsewhere. Can I ask for more or is there no negotiation at promotion stage?

OP, just wondering, is English your native language? Did you mean you've been promoted twice in the last 3 months? Or do you mean you've been told you're getting a promotion and it's going to be official/become effective in 3 months from now? Yes, you can ask for more and provide business arguments for why you deserve it and try to negotiate.

Publicis, do you speak any foreign languages? If you're not familiar with any and how sentence structure and grammar for conveying abstract concepts such as time can wildly vary in different languages, pipe down. I wasn't being even remotely sarcastic previously. And it wouldn't be the first time someone whose native language is not English who's posted something on here with a word off that has thrown all the comments into a negative thread. Such as the first two commenters on here. So, no SR1, not being smug in the slightest, unlike you. OP, congratulations and I have answered your question. In fact, if you're that much of a wunderkind and they're worried about you leaving them so they want to increase your required notice time, sounds like you have plenty of leverage to negotiate your new salary.

It will always be more somewhere else. Always. Be grateful that they are recognizing your efforts. Take the opportunity to ask them for a career path discussion.

Currently make 75k in a low cost of living area as a government employee. Big 4 tax background with 5 years experience. Currently working in regulation.

Based on my pay and what my spouse could make in SF the pay differential would be a slight decrease based on COL. I’m not seeing a bright future in my government career due to continual budget...

Hot take: If you're trying to leave consulting, it's actually to better on the same client / industry / project for an extended period (1+ year). While you have to constantly and proactively reinventing yourself so you aren't working a dead end role, the sustained time will allow to build deeper skills and open doors for exits beyond the typical strategy / PM roles most consultants target.
