Ok I thought you were quoted this number in salary negotiations, and you would have known the level of the offer. If you aren’t there yet and it’s just a base for this role in general, then you probably should decide based on the approximate TC based on that salary. I’m going to guess it’a still in the upper 100Ks and whether that’s adequate for HCOL really depends on what lifestyle you are looking for.
