My friend just got an offer for big four entry level associate. She currently works at a private investment bank doing tax (worked there for 2 years) Wondering if it’s possible to negotiate salary for entry levels considering she has some experience going in?

Absolutely not. Starting salary for new associates in set by the market. It is non negotiable. Many have tried, many have failed.

Not trying to be rude, but staff are a dime a dozen, and if they thought their experience was worth something, they would have brought them in higher or as an experienced staff. Especially I'm a covid environment.. I don't think they will have any luck. Can't hurt to try, but I would be surprised if they got anywhere

Yea no room literally at all for negotiation :l

No. Unless she gets an offer from a competitor which clearly outlines a higher salary for the same entry-level role, no chance. She's not coming in as a manager or above, so I doubt she has much room for negotiation.

Not at all

I thought it was impossible to, but I’ve seen people negotiate their way to a second year. TBD if they actually get Senior the following year or stay an A2 for another year.
