I’m currently interviewing for an AS role which would be a bit of a pay cut, but I’ll get to learn a lot so I’m interested. Any tips on how to approach the negotiation convo if/when that comes, besides asking to at least meet me halfway re:salary? They already provide unlimited PTO and free health benefits(which is nice).

Unlimited PTO sounds better on paper.

401k contribution, bonus (sign on, annual), stock options, remote work, if no remote work then transportation/commuter perks

That's good to know! Thank you

If you haven't given your current salary to the recruiter, I recommend you try to avoid doing so for as long as possible. The more important number is what you'd like to be making and whether or not the company can/would match that number to secure your hire.

Even if they can't match that salary, you can back down and you'll have lost nothing.

Some companies might be open to talking through like a "we can't get you that now but we can agree to an X% raise at X months to get you to Y?"

Love the suggestion -- I'll keep that in mind. Thank you!
