The offer was clearly meant to impress - if you’re going to negotiate, don’t be a jerk about it.

That’s my only advice. Good luck.

Why negotiate? They beat your number by $3k. You probably have them a low range and could’ve gotten more but I don’t think now is the time to negotiate.

No shame in accepting straight up and dropping your two weeks!

Thank you! I realized last year I was underpaid so I'm extremely happy to get this kind of offer!

In what domain if you don’t mind me asking ?

Don't mind at all. Opportunity is in market access and pricing, industry is pharma.

Just a quick update for those who were in a similar situation. I ended up not negotiationg. Considering total comp in this new role, I am at 60% pay bump so I really don't have much to complain about lol it is also aligned with type of work I'm interested in so overall, I'm just grateful for the opportunity. Thanks for everyone's advice!

I once found out my male counterpart made more than me. Because of this, I went to my boss and asked for a raise. His response was to tell me it’s a fireable offense to know someone else’s salary, that witnesses to murders get killed for a reason, and that he doesn’t believe in affirmative action. I know all of that is bullshit but he did say one thing that I’m now wondering, is this true? He said—never ask for a raise because your male counterpart makes more, ask for one because you deserve it.

Is there a commonly accepted practice for discussing referrals of potential class actions with other firms? I have a potential client, and believe to have identified unique legal theories that would enable the client to file suit. I worry that a firm may use my theories, run a marketing campaign to find a different client, and avoid having to pay a referral fee, which I would be requesting within the parameters of my state bar’s ethics rules. Thoughts?
