I just heard back from the recruiter and they are sending my application to HC! I'm beyond thrilled to have this opportunity. Furthest I've made it in a faang though I did intern at msft. I am being asked about my salary expectations in writing now. I have verbally said that I am looking at a base of 150-160k. I have no competing offers yet but I am in final rounds with a unicorn. How should I approach this? Anybody have any advice for me? I've never negotiated a salary before. All the info I see on glassdoor is much lower than the TC I see bandied about here. Recruiter is also telling me that I won't know my level till I start which I find absurd but not sure if that's the norm.

3.5 YOE (2 years in management consulting and 1.5 in a startup as a data scientist)

BBA in MIS from a top 5 school
MS in data science from a top 5 school (in CS. No rankings for ds yet)

Current TC 120k (contractor so this is just salary)

    What level? Although too late, almost never give out salary expectation.

      Base will be around current salary. Then bonus and GSU. Expect a pretty nice TC bump

    OP, did you ever end up getting the role?? Would be curious to hear any updates, especially in terms of what the TC ended up being — we have pretty similar backgrounds/YOE :) Thank you!
