High ball them and wait for their response, then negotiate from there. For me, my employer's response was a bracket, which I continued to negotiate outside of. Eventually got their highest offer of the bracket, which is fine. Current salary is much high than my last position. Lawyers respect it (and you) when you advocate for your worth. Idk your situation or what staff you'll be joining, but aim high! Really depends on the industry. Staff attorney for insurance? Start high. Staff attorney for a local non profit? This method may not be best.

I get the sense that part of the reason schools are slow to re-open is that the faculty is opposed to going back for self-serving reasons with an irrational argument to support their position. It seems like a lot of time is spent focusing on all the things that could go wrong and minimal time on how to make it work. I’m sorry summer break is over, but it’s time to get back to work like the rest of us do 365. Our kid needs an education and we need to work without worrying about it.

They used to always be all about spending time together and now seems like I have to remind them to put us first in the past month. We both work hard and have kids so life is more complicated.
