I’m contemplating leaving public accounting and have an offer on the table. For those who have made the jump, how often is a company’s initial compensation package offer their best and final offer? Is it assumed there will be some sort of negotiation?

Always negotiate

I got 3 offers and ended up asking for more for one and got rejected. For the other two I got 5k more. Ended up with one of the additional 5k jobs

Always negotiate. They may not give you more base but they may do a sign on bonus instead. I am always a little hesitant if a company doesn't at least try a little. I tried to negotiate for 3k more at my last industry job and they said no and it was pretty indicative of how they were in general (no raises unless promoted, only COL adjustments) - barely got that extra 3k after 2 years.

Thanks all… got a pretty good bump up
