I was offered $5k and got $10k without any trouble

Same here. Was a senior moving to a different Big 4, different service line. Was able to double the signing bonus with ease and it was way higher than 2.5k to begin with.

I saw someone who is seeking SM, but is currently a manager with 2 years experience ask for $15k

I was offered $5k and asked for $10k. They said they could offer $8k, but would agree to $10k if I verbally agreed on the spot.

I got 10k. Tax manager.

I got 0

Negotiating just depends on circumstances. How bad do they want you? What other offers do you have? Is it a deal breaker?

S1 recently offered 10k and they increased to 15k

Going to diff B4 different SL with 1 YOE, any chance they would go from 2.5k to 7.5k?

Sounds like I could definitely get 5k

I’m curious of everyone’s views on job hopping. I’m on my 3rd job and have ~3 years of sales experience. Each job change has been an increase in comp and has shown clear career progression. At this point I’m working for a well known public company in SaaS, in their SMB segment, which has been great. But I’ve been approached by a smaller startup offering to double my base salary, 2.25x my OTE, and equity for an enterprise rep position. This is very enticing, but would I look like a job hopper?
