Thanks! So should I negotiate then? I feel weird asking for more even though it’s way beyond my expectations. I guess the easiest would be to ask for more equity?

You got this! Bet on yourself OP!

I’m super underqualified 😂. I don’t want to push and make them expect that I’m some genius

How much more did they offer? I was offered a 50% base increase alone (bonus was 10x increase). I didn’t bother to negotiate base since I was given a role that was usually for more senior folks. Though I did ask for a 40k signing bonus. Didn’t want to rub the HM the wrong way either since he knew my YOE but my experience was the exact profile he was looking for. I was also very happy with the offer. If you’re also happy with the bump I’d just take it.

Currently in ECM at an RBC/UBS/WF and have an offer to join a T2 Consulting firm's strongest group as an Associate (think LEK/OW/ATK). Non-target undergrad and no MBA (although may ultimately want to get one), and this would be a ~20% base salary decrease. Looking for more varied strategic/operational experience and to develop a broader skillset as ECM has gotten repetitive and the exit opportunities are limited. No wife/kids/mortgage etc. so don’t mind travel. Thoughts?
