Compensation adjustment when moving to a new role (and team) in the same company
In your experience, if someone goes through the full interview process to join another team within their existing company, is the new offer typically based purely on experience level + average compensation for the new role, or should HR factor in what the person was earning in their previous role? I've been offered a promotion into another team within my company. This new position pays much more on average than the previous one. I'm wondering how much room I have to negotiate here knowing that the new offer will likely be a substantial raise to my current salary, but also that I don't want to be underpaid if they would be paying a new hire much more.
