More than just base salary you could negotiate for...not sure which company this is but you could always negotiate for a sign-on bonus or more RSUs (if applicable) in addition to more pto days

End of the day though you should be honest with yourself on the base comp and know whether that’s enough for you to be comfortable as well

Hey there wanted to ask your opinions. I was out of work for 5 months from May to October, when my started my new job my salary was higher due to paying less taxes throughout the year. Now with the new tax year my salary is down £700 ( paying full taxes this time).
Did anyone ever ask their employer for a reevaluation of their salary for similar reasons? In fact I don’t want an increase I just would like my salary as it was the past 6 months especially with the inflation.

Need some advice from UK Deloitte fishes: recruiter wants to place me within the OT (business ops?) team as a Manager and I'm not sure it's worthwhile because:
1) I have no plans on staying in consulting. Only joining to see what exit opps come up from having Deloitte + manager on my resume
2) Team seems to be focused on ops + implementation. I've done strategy + ops for the last few years so I don't want to completely abandon the strategy side
3) salary isn't as high as I'd like

Hey, another question for y’all. How should I reach out to a recruiter who offered me a full time position but I rejected for a better offer?

Now, a year later I have experience being in a role with limited over site (not as scary as I initially thought it would be) and feel confident I would excel in the role I rejected. How would you approach this situation? Thanks in advance!!
