    I wouldn’t even bother living in the bay area if you don’t have more earning power than that. It’s unfortunate but true. I’d counter.

    Ask for 10% more as it is the rule of thumb

    Jet/Walmart?

    For the position not bad. I mean it’s not a tech offer. There’s always room to negotiate tho. I’d either ask for bump in base, or small signing and medium sized stock to vest.

      What does a medium sized stock look like in terms of $?

    Uhhh at this range I don't think there is much room to counter, esp. with 1 YOE.

    I think it’s low. 75k would be good for cheaper state with 1 yoe but not SF. You will have a tough time managing expenses.

      I'm thinking the same thing. Advise on counter?

      -I think it’s not easy to negotiate until you have a counter offer, so can you get one?
      -If you have to thrive in the Bay Area, you need to be in Tech or ecommerce. Make sure the category you will be handling as a buyer will help you open gates into these industries.
      - if you work on 75k: 25% taxes, left 56k, 1.5k/month rent (difficult to go below this in SF even if you share)you will be left with 36k. Does your life style allow you to live in that much money? If yes then take the offer and look for better opportunities.

    Is it more than you’re making now?
