If its an offer (yours if you want it), why not anchor high? If its competitive and you may price yourself out of the job, maybe do more research.

Technically it’s not an offer yet. They came to me with the job and said I was the first person they thought of and first person they talked to

I’d send them a link to a website that shows controller salaries in the area and see what they say. That way you’re not just pulling a number out of thin air. Just make sure it’s in the ballpark of what you need/want.

Visit the site yourself and do other research to provide a range.

200-250k all in

Ask what their budget is. Then give them a range

Super jealous Agree give them a range

You are stating what would make you happy without pricing yourself out
