My friend just got an offer with middle market public accounting firm.
She will start as first year manager $133k + 5k sign on. However she will not be considered for current year(2022) performance evaluation/pay raise as her start date just misses the cut off (end of March), and that being said she won’t get a pay raise or bonus till Aug 2023. What counter offer should she argue yet still reasonable? Should she ask for a higher base or higher sign on?
