Recruiter won't give comp range; wants me to throw out first number
I'm heading to an on-site. The recruiter really wants me to name my target comp. I told her "market rates" and asked for the position's range, but she wouldn't get specific (just "high hundreds" plus bonus and equity). She said they don't pay like Facebook or Netflix, which I know are top of market, but it sounded like she was setting me up to expect a low figure.
How would you handle this? I don't see a point in doing an on-site if they don't know what market rates are. But I don't want to throw out the first number. She said she wasn't familiar with Amazon/Twitch comp ranges, so she's really putting it on me to anchor the convo.
Should I name a range, or move on?
This is in the SF Bay Area.
