Received offer of 92.5k and no signing bonus for GPS Consultant. Had spoken with recruiter about 95k before interviews and have heard of many others receiving 5-10k signing bonus. Should I push for both or just salary? How should I ask for signing bonus specifically?

Push for both to get the bonus

I am same in dc area and I got 90 with no bonus- anchored at 90-95 in pre interview calls, I asked and got a 3k bonus after seeing none in my contract, so we about evened out haha.

Could frame it multiple ways. Can talk about the real or fake amount of money you’d leave on the table by pivoting jobs. If I leave now I’ll miss out on my bonus that’s projected to be $X,XXX Tell them if they were able to bring you closer to $XX amount (like $98k or $100k) you’d sign the offer right away. they might bump base a few k and give a signing bonhs

Haha no I honestly agree. I’m just coming from a firm that severely underpaid consulting level staff so I am trying to make sure I’m on par with my colleagues at D.

How hard is it to go in-house once you're a partner? I'm up for evaluation this winter at a smaller BigLaw firm, but I'm questioning whether that's the route I want to go long term. There are plenty of remote jobs in my practice area (patents/IP, computer science focus). Making matters more difficult is that my wife and I will be starting IVF in Jan., and I know parental leave/benefits don't kick in for a bit. If I go through the shareholder process, will it be hard to go in-house?

A few years ago I was living with my boyfriend in nyc in a cute little walk up and one bedroom. We got married and then had a baby, along with pets. cute walk up has turned in to a nightmare —we are constantly on top of each since there isn’t much space and I hate to lug the baby up/down the stairs when we go for a walk. Also stroller has to be dragged to the first floor. We wanted to move out of New York once we find job prospects but I don’t think I can tough it out anymore after one year.
