What is the appropriate amount of time to follow up with a company after they've verbally told you they would be giving you an offer? I don't want to look desperate as I know that's not great for salary negotiation but it's been a week and I really want to follow up!

I would feel comfortable reaching out for an update a week after. Would keep it simple, just follow up on when to expect it.

Been offered a job in-house. For a tech brand. Could go from a MW salary to an ACD salary overnight. Marketers are all ex-agency, have big ambitions for the work. They have brand partners so briefs wouldn’t all be for 1 brand. Is it worth it this early on in my career? I’d also get stock options on top of huge salary increase.

Interviewed for Deloitte Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got much higher offers for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but needed time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.

BONUS SEASON! Now that I have your attention, I’m a Big Law baby. I joined a BL firm in March, so I haven’t lived through year-end bonuses before. Is there a predictable timeline for expecting bonus announcements? Do most firms give a set bonus per class year, or is it traditionally more discretionary? I would imagine that giving each associate a discretionary bonus would be too time-intensive, but what do I know. (Also, any inside scoops?) In the words of Cousin Greg, muchly appreciated.
