When a hiring company says they can cover my year end bonus if I come on board sooner, is that in addition to a signing bonus? Or is that the signing bonus?

That's the signing bonus (literally to cover transition costs/costs of signing with another company). One last thing you can negotiate is stock you might lose in the process

Not sure what the above posters are talking about. When I left consulting I got signing + covering my year end bonus ($50k + $35k) All things are negotiable.

Not meant as a smart ass - this sounds like a question for the new firm and an excellent segue into why your signing bonus needs to be XXX$$. Signing bonus is primarily meant to incentive the move and then cover lost bonus, transition cost

Sorry, no free cash :(

Sometimes the new company makes assumptions, and it pays to say less — my current company assumed I wouldn’t get year end bonus starting early Jan since their policy is to pay out every March, so they gave me 50k signing. Mum’s the word

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!

I just received a job offer for a position that better aligns with my skills and education. It’s also something I want to do and would get me out of banking, so to speak. The proposed salary offer is only 10% more than what I am making now, though. I currently have a fully remote job and have tons of free time and flexibility. I love my current job as it affords me time with my kids and it’s stress free. The new job is in an office setting and will have more responsibility. Not sure what to do?

First year analysts, what was your starting salary and signing bonus?

Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience. Since I joined my comp has gone up ~13% and I’ve liked my project teams but in my most recent review talk my partner told me he thought I was ready to be promoted and had advocated for me but there was an HR rule against it and I was on-track to be promoted in 6 months. Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.
