Job offer and Salary Negotiations

 
#1 Job offer and Salary Negotiations
07/09/2012 00:11

tescon

I have recently completed interviewing for once of the Big 4 Technology Consultancies and I was offered the role. However, I was offered a salary package just 3% more than my current salary. If I include pension benefits within the salary package its much lesser than what I am currently earning.

I really liked the team that interviewed me and am very keen to work with them but the regressive salary is sort of putting me off!

Is there a reasonable salary increase in the market when changing jobs? Something like on average 10%,15% or 20% increase to current package. Or is the job market so bad that this is the new norm. I actually did not apply for the job with them, but was referred within my existing network. Having seen the forum for the topics around this, suggests it can be any as long as negotiated properly.

Any views on the best approach forward to negotiate a better pay. I am looking to ask for at least 12.5% increase to my overall package including Pension. Does that sound reasonable?

Run away while you still can.

Yes, that I have decided. Would have preferred them offer the market rate in the first place, or at the very least close to market rate.

Negotiating your salary is okay as long as you can emphasize to the company you are applying for, that you are worthy of the position and of the salary that you are demanding.

Don't move.

What is in it for you is a pay cut, with no guarantee of a rise.

They want your skills - get them to pay for it!! Their clients will.
