I had a conversation with my relationship partner recently where she was all "I'd like you to stay but we're overstaffed anyway at all levels through manager, so I won't try to stop you from leaving." I can only imagine how trying to negotiate salary would have gone....

No negotiation at any level. It is what it is.

There's no negotiating only way I've seen to get a raise is to get an offer from another firm and sometimes the firm will make a counter offer.

There's also a chance the partners say good luck in your future career if they're not willing to match. If our going to play that game you have to be willing to leave.

You definitely don't get to negotiate salary. There are far too many people for them to let that actually work. If you're higher up you might be able to weasel your way into a slightly higher bonus.

No salary is negotiated. You can bitch and moan you want a bigger raise, but the answer will be "this is it or there's the door"

Yah the appropriate negotiating tactic is offer from another firm. Letter included cuz they will ask for it.

If you are good (1 or 2 rated with potential) and have an offer just say you are leaving. The partners will throw all kinds of money at you and reasons why the current firm is the place to be.

You are very replaceable at your stage in your career = 0 bargaining power. Also money grubbing is not seen as a positive trait. Generally, we are all pretty replaceable. Your new firm will give you a bump this year and then stick you next year.

Anyone have experience taking an RM role in a more corporate industry (i.e. consulting, tax, finance)?

I'm curious to see what else is out there and wondering if there are pros/cons (aside from the dress codes) or if it's a "same shit, different industry" type of situation.

I'm close to burning out, but I've just been given a new massive project to staff and roll out in a very short timeframe. It's going to take a series of miracles to pull off and represents a significant increase in workload and responsibility. My team will expand 2-4x its current size.

Any advice for how and when to approach adjustments to my comp and title? Do I wait until I've delivered success or should I be bringing this up now?
