Discuss the range up front. If it seems lower than what you expected, ask about pension, 401k match, long term incentive comp, etc. If these are not up to par, then let them know it does not make economic sense for you.

Yes, absolutely do this. Spoke with 2 internal recruiters recently and during or just after our initial conversation, I was told the expected salary range. It’s a waste of time if you’re in completely different places.

Thank you everyone!

Can any Infosys Senior Consultants shed light on this? My tentative salary discussion with HR was done on 9-May, i agreed to the salary they proposed, after that they said i'll get offer letter in 2-3 weeks. It has been more than a month now, yet there is no update. On their careers portal, the status is "Review in progress". I followed up with HR a couple of times, they just said they will 'update me soon'. Should i take it that it is not coming now?
