I want to stay but was offered more money elsewhere. I'd want to stay if Gs matches but willing to leave if they don't. Been here 18 months as lateral associate. How would you bring up comp?

Agree with GS, BAML, UBS. Co. Culture, firm's brand and capabilities, your team, career development opportunities are just a few of the many non monetary benefits with just as much if not more value than just the salary. FYI top performers and high potential employees don't jump the co. ship solely for salary.

Are you asking for something equivalent to what you should be getting or it's way out of the ballpark?

If you're sure the position and pay offered you at the other company is set (confirmed), then you have all the leverage in this situation. Just bring up how much you've enjoyed your time there and would love to continue your career progression at GS, that said you have more competitive offers for pay from other firms. Negotiate from there. Worst case you take the other offer. Just be gracious with your current employer in all cases.

Interviewing, second meeting with HR, was told there was a mistake in the salary range for the position. They dropped it 35% to exactly what I disclosed as my current salary. I know big mistake... but I thought they would understand that I wouldn't be leaving consulting for a lateral, when market value is much higher than what uncle D is currently paying. My thought is that there is probably no way to roll the clock back on this position.
