Base + 20% fibbing adjustment.

Not bonus ... that varies. Likely base plus COLA.

The two are pretty much the same over here in my experience 🙁

+1 to the fibbing point. People who talk about their salary openly, are probably insecure about it if I had to guess.

In past experience, previous salary is the starting negotiation point. Discretionary isn't considered unless you're extremely senior and it's tied to company financials. I've always emphasized salary, with bonuses really being as described, a bonus.

I feel being open about salary is a very good thing. No company wants to pay you cent more than they have to. Honestly telling a company during an interview your current salary without knowing the range their willing to pay puts you at a huge disadvantage. I wish more people were open about salary for the very least to know if I got a good deal or screwed over
