That's amazing OP, congratulations!!!!!! I would love your advice - I'm not up for M until August but currently interviewing for industry (frankly idk if I can make it to August in this hellhole). How did you negotiate such a big bump in base?

like

Agreed ey1.

OP, what does that salary look like after 5 years? Never been in industry, but the city in which I live makes moving beyond $200k base near impossible. But this "hellhole" as D4 put it had no problem helping me blow right past that threshold.

Thanks for the notes guys! And for anyone worrying about leaving for industry and taking a pay cut - I'm getting a ~$50k bump in total comp over what I would make as a 1 here. Am moving into Corp Strat for an industrials company.

After I got my offer (with no signing bonus) they said they only gave signing bonuses if the offeree was giving up something. I told them I had a lot to think about since I was hoping for a little more salary and was giving up my bonus for this performance year (which was true even though it wouldn't be paid until September). My prior years' bonus was 24.5% of my salary so I said I expected it to be ~$40k and they took like a week and came back and offered a $40k signing bonus. And I said "Where do I sign?" I always offered to show pay slips and didn't lie about my percentages. They never asked to see them.

@D4 I didn't negotiate the base, that's just what they offered me. I did negotiate a signing bonus though and for my start date to be after my promotion/GSAP (I got the offer in November). So maybe you could start looking now (or in 1-2 months) and go in telling them you're looking for a 9/15 start.

When you are up for a raise do you have a percentage in mind, a number or both? How do you set your expectations? What do you think is fair?

Received a verbal offer from a recruiter congratulating me on clearing the final round. However did not receive a written offer or what the TC package would look like. They have started the right to work checks and the investments / pension plan declaration. Is this normal? Should I send across any documents or wait for the written offer to come through (not even sure if the terms offered would be favourable!!)?

Anyone faced a similar situation / have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks!
