Is wanting to receive my year end bonus from Deloitte a valid reason for pushing back start date for another job?

I think it makes perfect sense especially if you are at the level where a bonus can make up 20-40% of your total comp

Yeah if you can be sly about it

Absolutely. I did this and clearly explained why to my new employer. They were agreeable but also clear that they didn't want me to start any later than the date I gave them (bonus payout + 2 weeks).

For you? Yes. For the other job? No. Probably going to need to come up with a better explanation to make that work.

I just said I had a vacation and would prefer to start after... wasn't a lie just coincided with 2 weeks after bonus :)

I also used a long weekend trip + moving cities as justification but I clearly mentioned the bonus and my new company had no issue. If you're moving to a place with a solid culture I think they'd be understanding.

Thanks everyone, I'll give it a shot with the recruiter this week. Also, Deloitte 🐠, could you point me to the policy link that says that we forfeit our bonus if we give notice prior to it being paid out? I've heard about it from a couple of people

like

Yes. And if you're honest upfront and they really want you, the new employer is expected to comp for any missed bonus

Yes

Firm is giving an extra bonus this year. After taxes theyll be just about the amount of interest on my law school loans (so much interest it’s disgusting). Do I immediately use all of it to pay off that interest, pay off one of the loans in full and put the rest toward interest, invest some, or other? I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!

What do you all think of this Louis C.K. quote as it relates to pay? “The only time you look in your neighbor's bowl is to make sure that they have enough.

Or do you think that by sharing our compensation we can do better as a collective group to force companies to take care of inequalities?

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?
