I've been in my current analyst role (MM M&A) for almost 2 years since graduation. After 3 rounds of interviews I have reached the final round interview to join the M&A team of a highly acquisitive corporate with c. $10bn sales. What should my salary expectations be? My current pay is not great ($65k + no bonus) and the hiring manager is aware of this. I was thinking of pitching at $100k but I'm worried this will come across badly as this represents a 50% increase on what I am on currently, however this is based on (i) my feeling that I am underpaid currently; and (ii) this company is highly acquisitive, has a massive pipeline of acquisitions and needs to grow their M&A team fast. Any insight would be much appreciated.
