Offer to see if it will help speed up the 2nd company’s process.

How much time were you given? When do they need you to start (ie if they have to get a project going 1/3/20 to hit a deadline, may be harder than if there’s no pressing deliverables)?

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?

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!
