Just found out bonus levels are set according to grade and my bonus level is lower than that designated for my title. Also I am about 45 - 50% underpaid than colleagues in my grade (project managers and sales) How do I ask for an adjustment of my comp package? I am about to hit my 6 month mark. I am legal counsel for the transactions team.

Did you negotiate your salary when you joined? What have you accomplished in the past 6 months that would warrant a substantial raise?

Generally it’s pretty tough to renegotiate comp in under a year.

Are the project managers and sales people revenue generating? Of course they get paid more than overhead….

Sales get paid more than Legal, 99% of the time, if they're hitting quota and getting their bonuses. You should not compare legal and nonlegal salaries. Apples and oranges.

How did you find out?

I don’t think you should compare your salary to revenue-generating positions.

I'm in a technology transaction role and also make considerably less than the software developers at the same level. As others have mentioned, revenue generators make more money.

I am coming up on a promotion. In preparation, I've done some market-level research for the future position and found the average salary is approximately $30k more than my current salary. I've been with the company for 10 years in various positions, but 2.5 in my current. My previous supervisor would never entertain any negotiations above the offer letter; stating "the offer is final". I've spoken with other colleagues and its not true.

Any advice for negotiations, and how much is too much?

Does this mean they'll call me if there are openings with some other project?

Additional Posts in In-House Counsel

I’ve been searching for an in-house role for about three and a half months now. I’ve had many recruiter phone screens, several interviews and rounds of interviews with different companies. Still waiting on two to decide but it’s taking forever.

I’m so ready to transition and am getting a little discouraged by the search. 6 YOE, litigation, interviewing only for claim litigation and/or coverage roles.

Is this normal? Any advice? Thanks in advance!
