There’s room for negotiation around the edges, like I think you may be able to swing a modest signing bonus, but no room for negotiation on base or stock comp. That’s all lockstep.

Curiosity, what’s the scale look like?

IIRC starting base is like 175, but they give you a year end bonus so it equates to low 200 cash comp. They then give you equity but only like 5% vests the first year. The idea is that your total comp nets to like just shy of 250; the year end bonus goes away after a year or two, the idea being that the equity replaces it, and by year 4 you’re making in the 300 range all in. It’s designed to only really be worth it if you stay for more than 2 years at a minimum. I also understand that the 175 in base comp never changes and it’s purely equity from there, no matter how much you get promoted. I might be off on those numbers but that’s the gist. It’s been awhile since I interviewed there.

Are there women here that have a significantly larger income than their male partner/ spouse? My husband used to make a little more money 10 years ago when we first met (when we were both making under 60k). Then I started climbing a fast track career ladder and now make a total comp of close to 300k and he is still under 80k... (which is totally fine with me btw). But I have noticed that this has caused a lot of serious issues for our relationship. any advice?

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

Kind of embarrassed to ask this, but how does one ask for a sign on bonus? I’ve never asked for one but I always hear about them. At what stage do you ask and how do you phrase it? I’m usually really bad at talking about/negotiating pay and it’s something I’m trying to work on when I eventually switch firms.
