I got an offer as a data scientist in France. I am a bit puzzled by the fact that it includes only the raw salary. There are no signing bonuses, production bonuses or similar. Is it normal in France or is it something that I might be able to negotiate?

    It will depend on the company hiring you. But : signing bonuses are really not common in France. production bonuses (if I understand what it is) are more common (but not mandatory). They might be called part variable, prime sur objectifs, prime de fin d'année.

  • I wonder if that question wouldn't be more fitted for workplace.stackexchange.com ?

  • Thank you for the info! How much do you think that, in general, it is possible to negotiate the base salary offer? Can I expect to pull off (if well motivated of course) a 10% increase?
