I was in that same boat and the company offered me 80k... I was able to negotiate up to 85k, I ended up not taking it as the pay increase was not significant enough to start over at a new place

My partner was in the same boat last year. With a little back-and-forth, he got up to 115K. Hope that helps. Good luck.

Novice Employee Question. Just got an official offer letter for a position (woohoo!) but it describes my compensation as “a salary of $X0000 per year,” when in my conversations with the employer, I will receive specific raises as I continue in the position. I asked for clarification, and the employer agreed via email that my understanding is correct. But they have not amended the letter. Should it be amended, or is the letter fine to sign as-is?
