Advice to Management
It's been so long, I'm not sure how the management is now.
Internal recruiters are friendly and efficient at what they do. After that, it takes a long time to go through the entire interview and hiring process. I interviewed with the company over a two day period with six managers. Then it took forever to actually get the offer, because the HR process is so slow.
Ask for 5% higher than they offer. If they like you and it's within the range they can offer, they'll probably be OK.
