You start at 24-26 at most places. Unless you smash it with awards or the like, you won't get more than 30 within those 2 years

I’m leaving a Manager role to take a Director one. They are finalizing the formal offer letter now. I want to leave my current team on good terms, not drop the ball on projects I’m leaving. I’d also like (need) at least a week to refresh and reset and get organized before starting the new director role. I’ve been negotiating terms with the new place since September 3. We agreed on compensation yesterday. Is asking for a Nov 1 start date pressing my luck/being a jerk or totally reasonable?

FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
