No, that’s a performance bonus. A sign on bonus is not contingent on performance, usually only contingent on signing and staying for x months.

Thanks C1. I thought so too. So def push back/ clarify?

Yes. I’ve always received signing bonuses with my first check and I’ve never heard of one contingent on performance.

I work for a non profit litigation group and handle federal litigation and administrative hearings as necessary. It’s salary with no billables.

I’m just trying to figure out how the billing would work. I’m salaried currently and don’t know how to structure it at a new firm so I am still getting paid for the project. Any thoughts?

I got an informal offer stating the salary range before they officially extend a written offer. I accepted over email and the recruiter said this:

What the heck do I say while being polite??? Of course I would rather it be higher than the lowest part of the range!!

We just got a new educational catchphrase without any actual details tossed at us before breaking for the summer. Anyone have experience with a “level system approach”?
