Hopefully the job doesn’t require negotiation or any type of selling?

funny

Thankfully no lmao

Never hurts to ask have them do $10k sign on and they’ll surely be eager. Base they may want to avoid paying out YoY.

Possibly. Depends on the base. I’d say negotiating anything within 5% seems a bit silly.

Base was 100, asked for 105 to seal the deal

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

Current situation: 120k salary, 500k equities(retirement+taxable) and roughly 30k cash checking plus upcoming sign on bonus of 20k in ~1.5 months Rent: 1150 Debt: Car loan: 34k Student loans: 9k CC debt on autopay: 3.5k for the month. How should I deploy my capital? 1) Save till I have 50k in checking. 2) bring cash balance slowly to 10k over 3 months by paying off car loans. 3) Ignore all debt, make regular payments, and continue Dollar cost averaging into equities. 4) other, pls explain

Everyone should openly share their salaries/wages with anyone who wants to know. It only helps other workers and is only bad for companies. Biggest company propaganda was getting the general public to think that’s it’s inappropriate to have salary transparency.

How to deal with an exploding offer? I interviewed for a company and was very excited for it. 1 recruiter interview & 1 with a couple team members. Then I got a short term offer a few days later, tried to negotiate and they came back a week later with a final offer. Rate stayed the same but was told I need to answer by next day. Honestly the process has made me so stressed. I'm interviewing with another company at the same time and their process feels warm & they take their time answering
