Ladies need your help on this one. Pay gap or am I being petty?

My bf and I were both approached by recruiters from the same tech company for the same role on different teams. We both have the same YOE, same degree from the same school, etc etc. Mid process he ended up not getting this role but reapplied for the same role one level higher with another team. He got an offer but they leveled him down (back to the original role) based on YOE. (Will continue in comments)

Thank you. Bf helped prep me for negotiations but my recruiter only came up 5k. I scheduled another call so hoping that one goes better

We both got offers from this company at the same role (very exciting!!!)

Because he was leveled down, he was able to negotiate for a TC at the low end of the next title.

I received a TC offer that was significantly lower than him.

We both quoted the recruiter the same amount in our initial convos.

It’s a good offer but I can’t help feeling slighted now that I’ve seen his offer. Thoughts? Do I just need to let it go and chalk it up to him being lucky?

For reference he was offered 20% more than me.

Thank you. He comes from a non Consulting background but I believe both our previous experiences are comparable in the skills needed for this role

Has anyone considered reaching out to the ABA and various state bar offices (likely anonymously) to reign in some of the large firms/partners with record profits that are laying off associates. Rule 8.4(c) / dishonesty and misrepresentation comes to mind, particularly with associate hiring. Many of these associates were solid performers and some firms have admitted they simply “overhired”. The layoffs serve only to keep the partners more rich. There may be Rule 1.1/competency violations as well.
