What aspects of TC are most negotiable? And by how much?

Everything is negotiable. Variable bonuses might be easiest to negotiate but you have the least likelihood of actually getting them. Depending on the company - there’s usually a range that they have that can be negotiated for the base. I’d say stock or equity is easier to negotiate for more as well. For early stage companies they always like to hear you Balte the equity.


Seconding this, everything is negotiable. Even things they didn't mention you can put on the table like a signing bonus. Worst case, they say no.


Easiest is RSU, my offer didn’t offer a signing bonus but I asked for one and they gave it to me. Base probably has the narrowest range. Of course, depends on role & company.


How can you negotiate? If they say no, what can you do?

I think that idea that you should already be “performing at the next level up” if you want a promotion is toxic


Today I look at the US flag and lower my gaze in shame - how did the US go so low! Says a naturalized citizen who came to the US on a F-1 student visa, went through the H1-B and Greencard, and believes in the American dream. I can’t wait for November to vote these xenophobes out!

Did anyone else have their Amex Serve shut down for "manufactured spending"? Any tips for spending 10k/month for a cc bonus? (Can't use travel expenses - firm requires corporate card for that)

PWC people - did the downsizing areas go past financial services into healthcare too? I received a resume that says reason for leaving "downsizing" I'm wondering if this was performance based.
