This is a pretty low offer unless it’s in the middle of nowhere. Don’t our entry level associates make more than 75? Either way, this depends on how badly you want to leave, if you’re content in the job, go big for 100, the market is hot

Phrase it as “this would be a step back, I am looking more closer to 95-105 depending on the bonus/benefits”, have you discussed comp before the offer?

Never hurts to negotiate. If they can’t give you what you want then decline and keep searching
