Salary Negotiations

National Vision

Hey all! Just wanted an opinion on a new role I have been offered at another company. My target total comp was 80k. Initial offer came in at 60 + 10% bonus putting the total comp at 66k. I countered and said based on research (cited salary.com, payscale.com, indeed.com, and Glassdoor.com) and experience (almost 11 years) I was looking to be at 81k. They returned with the counter at 65 + 18% bonus putting total comp at 76,700. We are literally only 3k away in terms of base as 68 + 18% bonus is 80k. How should I counter their counter?

    Merger was a little rocky but with new CEO in place, things are moving in a better direction. Workloads were quite heavy for a long time but seem to be getting more manageable.

    Amazing Place to Work

    Pros

    Coming from a recent hire in the engineering department (January): * Flexible remote policy. * Amazing compensation and benefits. * Great opportunity for career growth. * You will work with and learn from very smart people and teams. * You have a voice in the engineering department even at the lowest level.

    Cons

    * Currently, there is no defined career ladder to display what you may need to practice to succeed in your current role / practice the next step. However, this is actively being worked on.

    Pros

    - Competitive pay in the NC Triangle - Good benefits - Relaxed work environment

    Cons

    - Engineering team never really found its footing. Code quality not great, weak overall leadership, constantly putting out fires. - Benefits continuously slashed - All top leaders churned in 2019-2020, new leadership never felt like they were moving in the right direction, changing things for the sake of... change?

    Pros

    All of the change the company is going through has opened up tons of opportunity at the company.

    Cons

    Lots of people joining the company and lots leaving means that old ways of doing things are being upset, but also a chance to improve things that were not working before.

    Integration - never easy

    Feb 4, 2022 - Sales in Boston, MA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities for growth, promotion, and maximizing compensation plans. Challenging times during the Payfactors/Payscale merger (Q2 2021) - what company doesn't face adversary during a merger???? Since the middle part of 2021, the business has been absolutely dominating. For those members of the sales organization who stuck it out, the results were very rewarding. Many sellers were promoted and the future looks very bright heading into 2022.

    Cons

    Would love to see a plan around getting back to the office with a bit more regularity.
