No leverage in negotations

Hi All,


I am contemplating moving into a different office in a different region with my next promotion. There are fees associated with moving and there are visa's and lawyer fees that need to be paid. My employer would most likely pay for me to move abroad and the visa. However, in return I would have 0 leverage to negotiate a better salary for the promotion.


Does anyone have experience with moving to different offices and getting into a higher role at the same time? or changing situations and promotions at the same time so that I can get both the money for the move, and a good paybump.


Thanks

I'm not understanding why you would lose the ability to negotiate a salary + relocation. Can you clarify? I want this as my pay if I am the candidate of choice and also need xxx for relocation.ย 

If you are candidate of choice you always have the power.ย

I wouldn't lose the entire negotiation room. However, if you promote within the same office you could negotiate without and chips on your shoulder.ย 


If on the other hand you move from country A to country B then the moving and legal fees themselves would already amount to 10k+. so I'm scared that instead of offering me 150k OTE with 50k extra stock compensation that they would offer me fewer stock compensation because they are already offering me that 10k moving money.ย 

At the same time I have the issue that I would be competing with people in the other office that would also want to move, but don't require a 10k moving fee.ย 

So the business case for me would always be more difficult than promoting local talent in my eyes.ย 

I'm not sure how you would see this?

Sure, local is maybe preferred, but if you nail the interviews and become the candidate they cannot live without $10k is a drop in the bucket man. If it were $50k maybe they would look to hire there or draw up a cant leave clause for 3 years to get their money back. I think you nail it and ask for what you want!!!ย
