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

Hey everyone, I got a call from Deloitte recruiting on Wednesday of last week discussing salary requirements and location. They told me that the team really liked me and that they were going to work on an offer. I got a call on Friday saying one group has approved the offer but they are waiting on others. I haven’t heard much since then. Should I be worried? How much longer will I have to wait?

Does anyone know what an appropriate percent of a raise to ask for is? I havent gotten an increase in two years since my probation ended and I'm trying to determine a number to ask, but I dont want to aim too high

Info: cost of living has increased 6.6% in that time, and a posting within my company is over 15% higher than my salary for an entry level position. But I've also heard that 8% is the highest you should ask for, so Im not sure
