Can you share location for your role and company HQ if different location? I was in your position about 3 years ago in southern California and at that time salary looked like $100k + some equity in startup. ++ All the "fun" quirks of startup life like lots of free food, kombucha machine etc.

like

Columbus, OH. For added reference, no equity option at the moment, no free lunches, and a standard 3 week PTO package. Base is 69k currently.

I'd still think you could get to $75-$85k tbh even in the midwest

I think it's better to research what people in similar roles are making at other companies. Have you searched glassdoor and payscale? These sites often have accurate estimates.

Yes, I did a fair amount of market research across multiple sites. It looks like the Ohio average for 1-3 years experience is 93k before bonus. Found a few job postings on LinkedIn that fall in line with that salary… being a younger female I’m scared to “over ask” if that make sense..

I would ask for no less than 85k.

What's the min yoe for Business Analyst position at McKinsey & Company ?

I had an interview where the interviewer was acting extremely weird-almost as if she was trying to deter me from wanting the position. I shared about it in another bowl and many people suggested reaching out to the recruiter. After a lot of anxiety and overthinking, I reached out. I reiterated my interest and specifically said the interview was bad in my opinion. What are your thoughts?? Will I just be ghosted?

*just FYI, I sent this email 2 weeks after the second interview.

I received an offer Friday for a new role that my mentor referred me to & she’s the director of the team. Its more in line with my career trajectory, fully remote, and the culture seems great. They offered 80k and told me the range is 70-80k and they were excited to offer the top of the budget. It’s a little amount but I was hoping for a min of 80, but really like 82k thinking about the role. Do I bother asking since they gave the disclaimer top of budget or ask bc there’s prob room?
