What is up with companies with ridiculous pay ranges nowadays? $50k-$200k? That's a huge range....

In my experience, they are only really interested in paying the crap lower end but know they won't get any quality candidates applying. So by bumping it up they get a wider pool to interview, but then end up wasting the time of people who only actually want the high end in the range.

They are trying to get a larger pool of folks by saying that higher end. Likely they’ll be offering $60,000

I also wonder if it’s one of those states that require by law for employers to post salary, but they get around it by posting some ridiculous range so it doesn’t look like their salaries totally blow.

Ah good point! If that is true that is very obnoxious.

I have an offer to do some consulting for a company based out of the UK (I am in the US). The job would not go through a consulting company but would be directly with the company. I have not done any consulting before so I am not sure how it works, what I would need to set up (they mentioned that I would start a LLC and bill them directly, no idea how to do that), how to determine the tax implications of this, or what hourly rate I would expect.

I'm currently a Senior Associate finishing up my MBA and I'm interviewing for a role in Corporate Strategy. I would like to discuss the salary range for this role with the recruiter.

I just got offered a relatively senior role at a competitor. They told me base and bonus. They said they wouldn't give me a physical offer letter until I accept.

I do want to see if my current group gives me a counter offer.

I feel like this puts in a bad spot, because I have two options

1) Go to my boss without a physical offer letter, which is risky, because I both have no proof, & they can pull it at any time

or

2) Verbally accept, get the physical offer, and then go to my boss...which
