Tips on negotiating salary and overall comp package? I’ve never done this.

Do you research, tell them you expect fair market value, give them a range and qualify your numbers based on your background experience. Some states cant ask current salary anymore but if u are in a state where they can ask, be honest bc its not hard to verify. Just go back to "expecting fair market value". I was underpaid and when interviewing I was honest and told them thats part of the reason I was leaving and was able to get what I was asking for (it helped that I had a competing offer from another big 4)

I accepted a huge promotional offer to a manager role in industry. So I am leaving big4 as a senior. My background check just came through and somehow they have my big4 salary listed, even though I’m 99% sure I checked the box they couldn’t contact my employer. Could the company take back my offer for something lower?

I just received an offer from Deloitte to come in at the Consultant level in their GPS sector. I feel I’m being compensated pretty well with a 105k base and 5k sign-on bonus (I posted a couple of hours ago and my 17 month old managed to delete it somehow). Anyways, I would love to hear some brutally honest opinions of what the work-life balance could possibly look like.

How does I break the news to them?

I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
