Received an offer today but no sign on bonus . Tips !!? How do I negotiate to get some $$$

Ask, worst that can happen is they say no


Level/group, and starting salary? Some levels the bonus is just 5k and not worth the hassle/risk

Deloitte starting 120

What level OP



Is this for S&O? My gut tells me you should focus on getting the base comp higher. Pretty sure home-grown SCs make 120. A lateral hire should be able to pull more

Unless it's already a significant bump from current salary

Accenture 2 are you from D

Left D last year

Update : got sign on bonus after negotiating with recruiter

Anyone interested in moving into IB or have any advice for doing so? Second year M&A attorney here at one of the top Biglaw firms based in NYC.

Think I’m pretty set on trying to make that transition once I become a third year and Covid clears, any advice or thoughts on this would be much appreciated.

My boyfriend is a partner at a boutique tax firm and every year around February/March he basically shuts down and we don't hang out or text each other. We're very good about giving each other space but I always get so insecure that I'm being overbearing. I know he's busy and stressed with work but I can't help but feel like I'm doing something wrong. Is this normal?


Every week I hope that a hot guy will be seated next to me on the flight, but every week I'm extremely disappointed.
