I think I asked for too low of a salary during initial interviews elsewhere. The recruiter never told me the band either. About to go into second round. Is there still a chance to ask for more?

Salaries posted on fishbowl and other comparable message boards are always inflated. Don't stress over a couple thousand in year 1

What you’re feeling right now, everybody feels, especially if you expose yourself to something like Fishbowl. If the salary is right for you, don’t worry about what others think and just keep moving.

I agree. But do get clarity on grade/band ASAP. Usually agreement on grade at a min is needed up front.

What level? Years of exp?

Bahahaha! I’ve never heard of anything like this 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 I guess you’ll get what you deserve

3 years, Senior, started after undergrad, moving into industry as a lateral hire

D1 Rude much? Thanks for upholding the Deloitte stereotype

I asked for at least a 20% bump. Thought it was a decent bump since I just got promoted. It seems people on Fishbowl are asking for more though so got worried

Hahha I’m still laughing over here! You seem great at doing your research! :)

Yes. When they ask you what it will take for you to move, tell them you would want to be compensated for the work and value you do/bring to table. Until you have more clarity on role, you wont take job, but it is your expectation you will be comp'd for the value you bring and not what you did in the past for someone else. Something like that

In all honesty though, don't compare yourself to others, think about how happy / unhappy you will be if you move/not move, then about how you will feel to be screwed/not screwed, and decide from there

😂😂😂😂😂😂

I had an interview with a recruiter for a financial company for a GC role. She explained how they were having trouble finding candidates and that I seemed perfect. However, I feel that I'm totally not qualified for the position and that once it goes to the CLO I'll be shot down. Has this happened to anyone before where the recruiter thinks you're perfect but the hiring manager will not?
