Up for promotion to manager, have an offer to leave Big 4 for a 35% pay bump. Would you try to negotiate if you know others who have jumped to the same company for 15% more?

I’d try to negotiate regardless. Did you state salary requirements up front or did they throw a number out at you after a few interviews?

Application asked for salary so I put an estimate which is what they offered. But at the time I wasn’t up for promotion so my “if I stay scenario” played out lower.

It depends where you are now. Are you sure they got 15% more on their base or was it more of a bonus?

Yeah it was 15% higher on base, 25% higher on bonus. Same roles, just different timing (<3 months), I have more experience than the previous hires

For reference: S2 salary*1.35>M1 salary for me, by about 5 grand. Was a early promo and skipped senior 3.

Yeah given covid cancelling raises, I’m still making an S1 salary so it’s unlikely my M1 salary alone will come close to matching given that I’m also skipping S3 (so basically going from an S1 salary to an M1 is how it will work out). It’ll take 10% just to get me to the bottom of the M1 pay band.

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
