I spent 45 minutes driving to downtown L.A., 2-1/2 hours interviewing, $12 in parking, and an hour driving home in 405 gridlock. At the end the engineering director asked what my salary requirements were. I said I would prefer that he tell me what range they were looking at. He said $75k. I said I was thinking $110k. They said they could maybe get it to 80ish. Blah. Work 50% more hours than I do now, for less money, and have to deal with freeway traffic everyday. Guess I'll keep my current job for now.

Keep my current job until something better comes along. I like my job but I was hoping for a lot more from this new company. At least I work with super hot, super smart women :evil: Sadly many of them are super married :(

I sincerely hope that you mean the other way around.

If you have the education/experience to back up what you do, you should indeed stick to your guns. Don't sell your worth short.

You get to play with toys all day and you're bitching about how they don't pay you enough when you'd make 75-80k a year?
