I was offered a new role in my current org with account management responsibility for the largest customer in the product line I currently oversee. I have 2 years of working experience, but this role is a very large jump considering typical candidates might have 7-10 years experience minimum. My company has recognized me as one of the top talents, but offered a salary I believe is lowballed at $71k + 25% bonus eligibility. Is negotiating to $100k + 25% bonus appropriate or too big of a jump?
