Just got an offer from a BB in a sweaty coverage group. I’m a 1st year analyst at a MM tier II bank right now, coming in as a lateral. The offer is 85k + 10k signing (I will lose my original signing bonus bc of clawback and the bonus I’ve been accruing here ~15k). Does anyone have advice on how I can ask for more money or figure out who the other lateral hires are to see if they negotiated anything?

Mention the clawback and ask if they can cover it.

BB pay is pretty standardized at the analyst level so you’re unlikely to get a bump in pay or guaranteed end of year bonus or anything. You may be able to get some coverage on the clawback though.

I doubt they’ll care about this year’s bonus accrual

like

I would mention the clawback and that you’re giving up accrued bonus (which they probably won’t care about) and then ask if they can increase your signing bonus.

You might also want to look into the 401K match vesting because you might get screwed at the BB. You should try to make sure it’s fully vested after you complete the 2 year program (the BB I was at required 3 years, but started the clock on the start date of junior internship, so it was effectively 2 years)

Ask but don’t push hard. Normally senior people’s mentality at a BB is: 10-30k is peanuts in the grand scheme of your career, so don’t make it a big deal / deal breaker.

So I received an offer as a urgent care practice administrator of $3000 more yearly than my current …with an increase to $8000 when I assume an additional practice on a part time basis.

The time has come. My boss wants me to put a document together of average hourly freelancer rates AND salaries categorized by junior, mid-level and senior level designers and he wants it next week. Would you be willing to let me know your general location in the US, how many years experience you have, any specialties and your freelance rate or salary?
