Was extended an offer for SC position at a smaller consulting firm. Originally asked for 130K base, offer given was closer to ~110K base with ~10K in performance bonus. When countering with desired 125K base, due to other opportunities, base was raised to 115K. Would be happier with 120K base, but is it worth pushing for?

Just say you’d sign for $120 and they’ll give it to you. As other commenters said, $5k is nothing to you and so $5k is even less to your employer

5k is nothing to them too. As again for your 125. Worse case they say no, or better case they move closer or give you the 125. Goes without saying, but give a reason or emphasize why they should go to 125.

What kind of negotiation is this company doing? Now it’s getting me thinking, should you start off by asking for 10 to 15K more than your desired base, knowing the company is going to try to bring that number down by that much?

Yes, always. I always waaaaaay overshoot

Ask for a larger sign on bonus to make up the difference. I did this recently, and my sign on was increased by 3x bc they could not budge on the base (which was already at the max for my position).

Hi- I’m an hourly AA, been on the role for 6 months now and it’s my first AA job. I did not get a raise when I took the job because it was technically a demotion ( I was a team leader at a contact center). I assist two VPs and now they want to add a third because they’re looking for the “ 3:1 ratio “. Should I ask for a raise? Is this normal? I know another AA that handles 3+ people but idk if she’s hourly or salary. Any thoughts?

Why EY GDS India is so greedy after making highest ever profits in the history. Usually New Senior Program, will be conducted on offsite, but this time they made it fully virtual.
