If you go through the interview process set up by an external recruiter, how does that impact your salary and sign-on bonus negotiation? I ask this assuming the firm pays the external recruiter with a portion of my comp?

No, the external recruiter gets what amounts to the referral bonus the firm would pay to an employee. It doesn't come out of your compensation.

External recruiters can actually get better salaries than you can negotiate. They know the HR team, they are familiar with the firm's pay bands, and they have a vested interest in you doing well so they can get referrals in the future.
