Your first step should always be glassdoor for that company to get an idea of the range Then flip the question back to the recruiter and say - instead of giving a random number, please share the range that the employer is willing to pay for the position. I will let you know if this fits what I'm looking for If the recruiters range matches the range from your research, pick a number in that range that makes you comfortable (usually starting at the higher end) If it's outside the range, pick the higher # between the two ranges and say that's your number

I most certainly will!

Working as a Principal at Slalom Consulting, 2 YOE, strictly Salesforce. My prior 10+ YOE is tech consulting/digital mktg outside of Salesforce. I'm happy with comp, projects, coworkers,etc. Salesforce is recruiting me for a solution architect role in CSG. After talking to 2 recruiters, job sounds identical to my current role. Outside of equity, is there a compelling reason to consider Salesforce? I think the equity would be nice but travel also seems more likely postCovid. Thanks!
