OMD extended offer this morning. Tried negotiating, but recruiter informed me that the role’s salary was non-negotiable. Is this standard agency procedure? Anything else that can be negotiated?

It happens. Sometimes budgets are budgets. Sign-on bonus sometimes but lots of talent available right now. Don’t push too hard or you risk them rescinding the offer.

Couldn’t agree more. I’ve been giving myself space to process the offer, but def agree if i’m not 100% about it, it’s a no.

I had this issue since my agency is teeny tiny and there isn’t much wiggle room - was able to get extra vacation days and a decent EOY bonus, and have them contribute to my 401k within my first month instead of waiting a full year plus WFH days 3 days per week if I wanted since my commute was rough (before the pandemic lolol) You can also ask about other benefits like training/education if that’s important to you.

Try extra days of vacation or immediate health benefits without probationary period.

Good tip, thanks Art Director! I asked for an additional week of PTO so we will see what they reply in the morning.

Especially with the current WFH situation and the ever-blurring line between “work” and “home,” having paid OT is amazing.

I’m also salary, and everything after 40 gets time and a half. It had never occurred to me before to ask in regards to a salaried role, but when they couldn’t budge on the initial offer, they suggested paid OT. It’s been an amazing thing to have this year!

Accepted an offer with a new company for a similar role I’m currently doing with over double the money. (YAY!) My immediate boss, was completely classless and belittled me for leaving. • “You can’t handle the role here? Good to know.” •” You are taking a step backwards in your career?” (I’m not) • “If you can’t handle running a large sales org, then this makes sense, I’ll make sure your replacement can.” (I can and do, and will at my next role, making double the money.) 🙄🙄🙄 stay classy

Kamusta? I'm new here. I'm a CPA in the Philippines.

Where do you think should I start checking on? 😁 I'm thinking if I should go back as External Assurance Auditor to where I am 2.5 yrs ago in a one of the Big 4 before I became a Consultant on a project-based as, so far, as Tax Specialist. Any advise to my baby mind? Thank you! 😊
