Was offered 110k base at EY as a senior consultant in advisory. Does this sound appropriate? Should I counter and ask for higher? Bonus wasn’t very high so can maybe wiggle there but wondering if salary is as expected. Thanks.

Always counter. Always.

Thanks for the tip. Someone recommended to leverage the unlimited PTO to ask for more. Is the negotiation better received with an explanation or is it better to keep it generic? Since the salary is what I requested, I was going to wiggle the bonus a little more with the reason being due to current environment the extra bonus would help adjustment blah blah. I just feel like calling out something like unlimited PTO and using that to ask for money might come off the wrong way. I’ve never negotiated so I’m not sure what’s the best way

Tier 3 city. Not sure about rank (wasn’t in offer) but have about 5 YoE

I’m in tech consulting, a major us city, and I’m < 100 with 3yoe. If I were you I would counter for more. I mean “I” wouldn’t counter for more because I’m a horrible negotiator and have a hard time asking for things. Also apparently I’m low performer because it seems like everyone is making more than me. But you, you should go for it. This is a business where you have to be assertive and a go getter. The worse they can say is no.

Thanks ey3

I would ask them what rank of senior it’s for, but for Tier 3 that seems solid (coming from Tier 1 making <100k due to covid

what group within EY was this?
