Why do companies, specially consulting ones, still cares about a referral? People are giving referral like candies to unknown people just to get that juicy bonus (not judging, have done the same).

First off, you referring someone is still a better shot than aiming randomly. Second, in order for you to get the bonus, the person needs to get hired and therefore needs to have gone through the process. Third, companies keep a good tally of who you send their way as a referral. If you’re a repeat offender in sending profiles that are deemed inadequate, you could be banned from providing referrals and this may also have implications for your own career at the firm. I have observed this happening a few times.

Currently PM at microsoft but considering switching to a startup in Amsterdam. Pay will be lower, but am excited about company/people/mission. That being said, still I want to negotiate the offer as much as possible, and want to feel like am getting a fair deal. The current pay cut from my current salary is a bit of a hard pill to swallow. How much is reasonable to negotiate? Offer details and current salary info in comments.
