Then, they came back saying they can offer 140k and a 5k bonus, but that’s as high as they’re willing to go. I want to push back one last time, and I’m willing to walk away if they won’t do better. I’m not asking for anything unreasonable, but they’re saying they can’t offer more than $140k for a mgr role when I know some senior associates make more than that. I have 9 yrs of consulting experience. What should I say? I'm trying to find the right way to say the minimum I’ll take is X.

I wouldn’t anchor on a minimum more push them for their max and then decide if it beats your min. It sounds like there’s a number you’re looking for though, what is it?

I only ask to see how far the gap is. Also when places say they’re at their max they sometimes don’t budge. Is there anything else you could negotiate e.g., vacation days?

I'm a benefits director at a large company, and we're adding a fertility benefit starting Jan 1. It looks a lot like Deloitte's program (just noticing Deloitte a lot in this bowl), though ours will be slightly more generous with lifetime maxes. I'd love your feedback about what your employers do especially well or poorly, just to ensure we don't have huge blindspots as we roll it out from scratch. Honest feedback from people who are on this journey is appreciated!!
