Can you still negotiate a higher salary from the original headhunter/recruiter given range?

Always

Yes

Always negotiate. Worst that can happen is that they say no and you have to decide if you're okay with the existing offer.

Thanks all. I am leaving consulting for industry. Currently at 130 and was given 110. Not asking for more but at least I am hoping to stay the same...

That's fine, but make sure you don't tell them that and tip your hand.

Got a really substantial (~40%) mid year raise after I brought in a basically unsolicited competing offer from one of our peers. My firm typically only adjusts salary on an annual basis in March, and I’m pretty worried I’ll see a smaller than normal annual raise this spring to “make up for” my out of sequence mid year raise. Any advice on advocating for myself to ensure that doesn’t happen?
