If you say 115 you will be laughed at. Even HCOL experienced hire Cs don’t get paid that. Aim for 105. That’s aggressive but start high

There are certainly some exp hire C’s at 110-120, all depends on the market. I just gave a huge range because the post is super vague

I also got 105 after asking 85-90. Consensus is I got lucky since i lowballed myself.

I got 125K, know others that were offered 135. COL was irrelevant in my negotiations.

Thank you all for your input! I’ll follow the advice of aiming for 105 and going from there

After 1.5 years at the company I realised I am well underpaid. I am well aware that it would be a long shot to ask for a big raise (20k), but at the same time I don’t want to change company for that reason. A career coach told me that with my qualification I could easily earn 40k more per year than what I do. It’s really frustrating knowing that some colleagues without previous work experience would earn more on day 1 than what I earn now. I was a tech consultant for 1.5 years before this. Tips?
