Recently received a very good offer from a $600M+ AUM VC / Growth Equity Firm for a Sr. Associate role ($160k+ base, 20% bonus, no carry). I feel like it would be dumb not to negotiate but the headhunter told me I was already toward the top of the range for what they were looking to extend. I don't necessarily need more base but wanted to know if I should look for a bigger bonus band or maybe some carry... maybe even a signing bonus.
1) Is this a good offer?
2) What would you guys do?
Background, 5 years VC / PE experience (straight out of UG).
