I know where I kind of am. However as I've only been doing this professionally for a little while. I'm curious what others who have been at this a lot longer think. For me, I have a set number that I need to start with to be able to pay all my bills and stay above my debt. From there I just try to take into account the job and the company. I'd imagine larger companies can hire at higher rates than smaller ones. I do a bit of research on indeed and salary.com to see what the averages. However I am a little skeptical about the accuracy of those sites.
