I'm applying for different jobs right now and can tell that my pat at BCG is much lower than the crazy market right now. If I get the offer at another company, I want to negotiate salary and stay at the company if I can... should I use the offer as leverage? Our company is kind of known to not negotiate salary because we have good benefits, but I think it can be possible in the midst of Great Resignation and higher negotiating power of top performing employees.. any thoughts?

If you aren’t happy then you should go elsewhere, more money or not. If you want to explore your pay then go to your manager sans another offer on the table to see what can be negotiated that way.

I agree with MC1. More money will not make you happy if you’re already unhappy. If there are of other aspects you enjoy than that’s different and it’s worth a try. Bring a list of areas you’ve gone above and beyond along side having an offer. And, be prepared to leave if you don’t get the response you’re looking for.

Yeahhhh BCG doesn’t take kindly to the whole trying to leverage another offer scenario. They will say… sorry to lose you ✌️
it’s unfortunate :/

That’s not true in all cases. I know of two different recent scenarios where they asked for more money and pointed to other offers, and both got what they were looking for from BCG. Doesn’t always happen of course, but you have to advocate for yourself. No harm in trying if you’re already one foot out the door

Interviewed there. Comp was much less but bennies were good.

I work for a small startup and just got a $3k “market rate adjustment” raise on my $112k salary. I was informed that this was due to the market rate for product design doing worse this year than last year, in addition to the company basing salaries on the average pay for senior product designers in “the whole US outside of major cities”. Even so, this seems low to me and I just want to get a sanity check. Should I negotiate?
