I got an offer from Spotify for their Product Marketing Manager role in NYC. I believe I've been lowballed.
Here is the comp breakdown: 95k base, 22k bonus.
I work in Chicago right now, where cost of living is so much cheaper. My total comp here is 92k
How would I go about negotiating this? Any help on this is much appreciated.

- Uber UberBernieSpotify is known for not offering competing TC. You should try to negotiate something a little higher than $95K (because what I heard is that your chances to increase base is almost none once you are there). Career growth is number 1 complain I heard from other people who came from Spotify. Try to negotiate the best you can and good luck!
- Notorious for horrible offers. Great place to chase your passion for music and get left behind in the dust on TC. They didn’t even budge $1 on a crappy offer to me so lost me to FANG. I even had competing offers ....
But you are just getting started so not bad as a place to stay for a couple of years and move on. Just don’t stay too long.
