I received and offer that’s low because I’m not within 50 miles of the office. ( I’m 62 miles) I’m thinking it’s a 10-20% cut but that means I won’t be getting a boost in salary if I accept this role. I was anticipating 130k and only getting offered 110k. How can I negotiate my location only being a few miles outside the “zone”. Bay area

Is the role on-site? Is it remote? Is the cost of living drastically different between the 62 mile radius and the 50 mile radius?

If not, I’d argue the job responsibilities and qualifications are the same no matter where you are located. I struggle to see a reason why the offer should vary based on that parameter unless it’s the difference between Cost Of Living.

Yes, we may need more details please. I’m very confused by this.

It’s a “50 mile radius from the metro area” rule that’s causing this person to miss out on the Bay Area geodiff the company offers as part of their comp package and instead they are getting offered a base salary without a premium (likely aligned with the US average data). I’d try to negotiate it, but it may be futile if they are really sticklers on applying the policy consistently. I’m not a fan of that strategy for this exact reason, but because they use it fair application is the most important thing for the company. So I would temper your expectations. That stinks. Sorry.

I mean it shouldn’t. It’s Santa Cruz vs San Francisco.
The role is remote
