I just got offered a tech support job at a software company in Silicon Valley. I have a little over a year of experience at another software company doing pretty much the same thing. They're offering me $17/hour, which I find low. The company is about 500-600 employees, and they still consider themselves a "start up" because they haven't gone public yet.
I want them to bump it up to at least $19, which I feel is still kind of low (at least compared to my last job). Anyone else work in this industry and familiar with rates for these types of positions?
