an 

Associate Attorney

I am a 6th year associate at a boutique law firm. I plan on applying for an in-house counsel position in Southern California for a company with close to 3000 employees and over 1B in revenue. I am looking for any insight you can give me as to salary expectations and benefits. Both for my own info and so I know what to state in the application. They are asking for salary expectations. Thank you!
